Thank you for your patience and understanding with regard to the Garda Vetting turnaround times.
Eighty per cent of Garda Vetting Applications are taking ten working days, and twenty per cent are taking longer. To prevent further delays with Garda Vetting applications, please ensure that applicants’ email addresses are spelt correctly or they will not receive their links from the National Vetting Bureau.
When you have finished inputting a Garda Vetting application you will see a ‘Thank you screen’
and you will receive an automated email with an ECI001-2021*** reference number. This email reminds you to check that the applicant has received the link from the National Vetting Bureau so that they complete it as soon as possible. If the applicant hasn’t received the link, please ask them to check their junk mail and if it is not there please phone us on 01 405 7102 to check that the correct email address has been inputted.
Tracking a Garda Vetting application
Garda Vetting applications can then be tracked by inputting the applicant’s ECI001-2021*** reference number and their date of birth on the National Vetting Bureau website. Make sure there are no spaces put in before or after the application ID number as it may not work.
