Get Started

Victorian law requires that anyone having Artificial Insemination (AI) or Assisted Reproductive Treatment (ART) procedures must undergo a criminal record check with Victoria Police and a Child Protection Order Check before they can be treated by an ART clinic.

Police Checks

All patients and their partners (if applicable) residing in Australia must have a Victorian Police Check. There is a fee involved for each application and this is payable to the Victorian Police. The fee is located on the Victorian Police website. Police checks can take up to 3 weeks and we cannot proceed with treatment without sighting the original police check.

PLEASE NOTE: WE ARE UNABLE TO ACCEPT CRIMINAL RECORD CHECKS COMPLETED THROUGH ANY OTHER DEPARTMENT OR THIRD PARTY ORGANISATION. 

ALL AUSTRALIAN RESIDENTS:

Please note that IVF Applicants are an exception to the statement on the Victorian Police website advising that interstate applicants should apply for a Federal Police Record.

In order to complete the Victorian National Police Check form please:

  • Visit the Victorian Police website and download the electronic application form. If you are unable to open this form, there is an “Alternate Application for National Police Record Check” available that can be printed and manually completed.
  • In "Section A: type of check required" mark the "National name check"
  • In "Section E: Purpose of check" "Option 1" mark "Other" and write "IVF APPLICATION"
