Current application and renewal fees for a WWC Check are:

  • for employees and self-employed people: $84.00
  • for volunteers, unpaid people and students on unpaid placement: $11.00
  • for replacement Cards: $11.00

The fees are heavily subsidised by Government and do not reflect the full cost of the check. Where a WWC Check application or renewal is made in error a refund may not be possible due to processing and administration costs already incurred.

If this is your first application for a WWC Check or you have previously held a WWC Card which has now expired click here for information about how to apply.

What fee should a person pay if they do both volunteer and paid child-related work? 

If a person has more than one child-related role in both paid and voluntary/unpaid work, then they must apply or renew their WWC Check as a paid employee (or self-employed person) and pay the fee of $84.00. If the person is a paid employee the organisation they do paid child-related work for will confirm and sign their WWC Check application form or online renewal.
