Can issuance of the National Police Check certificate take longer than 24 to 48 hours?

Australian National Character check normally issues applicants with their Police Check Tasmania certificate within 24 to 48 hours. Although, issuance of the TAS police clearance certificate for applicants in TAS might take longer if the Australian police agencies see the need for a 'manual review'.

Manual reviews get referred automatically and may occur when part/all of the data on an applicant's file is similar to data on the Australian criminal history database. In such cases, a manual review is done by an official from Australian police agencies. A manual review can delay the application by as much as 1 to 15+ days.

Unfortunately, it is beyond our scope in Australian National Character Check to predict which applications/applicants might be ‘marked’ for manual reviews. Checks referred for manual review does not always mean an applicant has a criminal history, rather it could be as a result of the search algorithm matching shared data like names.
