The National Vetting Bureau will still offer the facility to make an application for Garda Vetting using a paper application. If you would like to apply for Garda Vetting using a paper application you should contact the Relevant Organisation you require vetting for and request a Garda Vetting Application Form.

The vetting subject completes the Garda Vetting Application Form and returns it to the Relevant Organisation with proof of identity.

The Relevant Organisation checks the application form and forwards the application to the National Vetting Bureau for processing.

The application is processed by the National Vetting Bureau and on completion a vetting disclosure is forwarded to the Relevant Organisation.

There is no online facility to track paper applications. For any queries on the status of paper applications please contact the relevant Liaison Person with the Registered Organisation.
