Garda Vetting Letter

What is Garda Vetting?

Garda vetting is process of checking a person’s background to see if there are any issues which would make him/her unsuitable to work or volunteer in an environment with children and/or vulnerable adults. The person being vetted (the applicant) gives written authorisation for An Garda Síochána to disclose to TU Dublin – Blanchardstown details of all prosecutions, successful or not, pending or completed recorded in the State at the time of application.

How will I know if I need to complete the Garda vetting process?

If you are a student on any of the following courses, you must be Garda vetted:

  • Social Care
  • Community and Youth Development
  • Early Childhood Care and Education
  • Sports Management
  • Horticulture

This list may be added to should the need arise for students on other courses to be vetted.

How do I apply for Garda Vetting?

Prior to attending Registration/Induction day, all first year students on the above courses are required to:

  • download and complete the Garda Vetting Invitation NVB1 Form
  • students who are under 18 must also download the Parental Consent Form NVB3 and have it completed by a parent or guardian
  • bring the completed form/s along with both the original and a photocopy of one of the following documents to their Registration/Induction session:

a) Passport

b) Irish Public Services Card

c) Driver’s License ( credit card style only )

How long will it take?

Once the student’s information has been inputted into the Garda vetting system, an email will be sent to the students e-mail account with log in details to the Garda e-vetting portal. Students have 30 days to complete their on-line application before the invitation lapses.

Students who fail to make the full application within the 30 days, will be rerquired to pay a fee of €20 to make a second application.

Currently, it takes about 2 weeks for vetting to be completed from the time the student makes the full online application on the Garda e-vetting portal.

What should I do if I lose my Garda clearance letter?

If you lose your Garda vetting clearance letter, additional copies are available at a cost of €20.

Please click here to request and pay for a replacement copy.

What should I do if I allow my Garda Vetting Invitation to expire?

If you do not log on to the Garda e-portal within 30 days of receiving the vetting invitation and therefore allow it to expire you are required to pay €20 to re-apply for vetting.

Please click here to pay to re-apply.
