New forms are now available. Please ensure that you access the most current version of forms to avoid processing delays.
There have been some name changes for certain forms:
How long will it take to get my blue card?
As a guide, allow at least 28 business days for processing where an application is completed in full and where there is no police or disciplinary information.
If more information is required to process or assess your application, then your application may take longer to process.
If you are concerned that you have not heard from Blue Card Services after 28 working days and you have not been requested to provide further information or have a criminal history, please contact us.
New online payment service
If payment is required and you want to pay by credit card, you can do this online. The online payment service is available here.
Please check your form first to confirm whether you need to make a payment.
There is no application fee for people applying for a blue card as a volunteer or student undertaking a practical placement.
Upload forms online
You can now load a completed copy of your form through the Blue Card Services website for immediate lodgement. The upload form service is available here.
