Top NZ MoJ Criminal History Check FAQ

What is a NZ MoJ Criminal History Check?

An NZ MoJ Criminal History check is the New Zealand equivalent of the Australian Police Check. It informs employers of a candidate's disclosable criminal history to enable them to safeguard their company and clientele from risk.

These checks are distinct from the NZ Police Vetting Check, as they can be used for any role (not limited to vulnerable groups), and contain only criminal and/or traffic conviction information (subject to Clean Slate exceptions).

If the role involves contact with the children or vulnerable groups, the NZ Police Vetting Check may be recommended.

What information is required for a NZ MoJ check?

All we need are your occupation details, personal details, 10 years of address history and proof of identification (usually a passport, NZ driver's license etc.). We also accept various forms of alternative identification if the traditional forms are not held.

How long does a NZ MoJ check take?

In most cases, results for an NZ MoJ check are received within three working days.



Our platform provides the option of a single or multi check report for all checks that you carry out. All the information you need is available to read and save at the click of a button.
