To be eligible to obtain a security clearance (Baseline, Negative Vet 1 or Negative Vet 2) the successful candidate must be an Australian Citizen and must be able to establish their background as checkable to be considered eligible for a security clearance. Any gaps or periods of time spent overseas for 12 or more months (cumulative) that cannot be verified by an Australian referee are typically deemed uncheckable, rendering the candidate ineligible for a security clearance.

The successful candidate must be willing to disclose all relevant and required information to fulfil this process.
