Early Childhood Ireland is experiencing very high levels of Garda Vetting applications at present. We notice there are duplicate vetting applications submitted on the National Vetting Portal, which can slow down the Garda Vetting process and may be cancelled by the National Vetting Bureau.
If you think you made a mistake when inputting an applicant’s Garda Vetting application (e.g. incorrect date of birth or incorrect email address) contact us at email@example.com and we will amend the vetting application for you.
***It is important that you do not resubmit a vetting application as this causes duplication.***
How to check if your Garda Vetting application was successfully submitted:
- Did you see a ‘Thank you for submitting a Garda Vetting application’ screen when you finished submitting an application on the Early Childhood Ireland online vetting platform?
- Did you receive an email notification with a reference number for the Garda Vetting application? This will be sent within an hour of submitting your application if during business hours. If you input a Garda Vetting application at night, you will receive the email notification the following morning.
Tracking a Garda Vetting Application
You can track the Garda Vetting application by entering the ECI001-2022*** reference number and the applicant’s date of birth into 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.
