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.

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.
