Application process and requirements - Gaming industry employee

This page outlines the process to apply for a new gaming industry employee licence.

If you already hold a gaming industry employee licence that has not yet expired and want to renew your licence, visit the gaming industry employee licence renewal information page.

Follow the step-by-step guide on how to apply for a new gaming industry employee licence.

Step One - Get police clearance

You are required to submit a National Police Certificate.

A National Police Certificate lodged with the VCGLR must be the original or a certified copy of the original and no more than three months old.

The VCGLR will accept a National Police Certificate from the Australian Federal Police, Victoria Police or any other provider appearing on the most current Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission's List of Accredited 'Broker' Organisations.

For more information, see National Police Check or contact us.

Step Two - Get a credit report

You are required to provide an Australian individual credit report from My Credit File or illion (formerly known as Dun & Bradstreet).

See Credit report for more information.

Step Three - Get a passport size photo

Get a digital colour passport size photo.

Step Four - Online application

Complete all fields of the online application. You will require a digital copy of your National Police Certificate, credit report and passport-size photo. Once you have completed this, you'll be instructed to:

  • save your application
  • provide all documents relevant to your application.

Please note:

  • Your online application cannot be accessed or processed by the VCGLR until you complete all four steps above.
  • To check the current application fee, refer to Gambling application fees.
  • If you have lived outside of Australia for 12 months or more in the last 10 years, you may be required to get police clearance or a credit report from the country you lived in. Contact us to find out what information you need to provide.

More information about the online application

Can I save my application?

Yes, you can save your application at any time using the ‘save’ feature in the online application. Applications can be saved for up to 14 days. When you save your application, you’ll be sent a unique link to return to your application.

Is the application compatible with all computers and browsers?

Yes, the online application is compatible with all internet browsers and may also be used on mobile devices including laptops and tablets.

Do I need access to a scanner?

The online application requires you to upload attachments, so you’ll need to use a scanner or submit the required documentation if it’s not already in a digital format. For example, if you apply for your credit check or individual police check online, you may receive a response emailed to you in a PDF format, which you can upload.

Digital passport photos

The online application requires you to upload a passport-size photo. Many photo agencies may be able to take a photo of you and provide you with a digital version which you can upload to the application. Please ask your photo agency if this option is available.
