Ministry of Justice Checks


Ministry of Justice Criminal Conviction Check Service

If you employ people do you police check them?

A Ministry of Justice check forms part of a robust screening and background checking process for organisations.

Processing an online police check through the NZ Ministry of Justice (MoJ) quickly provides a business with accurate information about an individual’s criminal history, allowing an organisation to consider this information to make an informed, educated employment decision.

There are two options available to companies when choosing to invest in a NZ criminal conviction checks. Organisations can flexibly choose between a ‘standard’ check or a ‘priority’ check, based on their needs, the timeframe they are working within and their budget.


Priority or Standard Ministry of Justice Check?

The primary differences between standard and priority checks is price and time – not only in the financial sense, but also in terms of lost productivity. A ‘standard’ application is free however it can take up to six weeks to return a final result.

The MoJ’s priority service promises a five day turnaround and is an attractive choice for businesses that need information swiftly in a hurry, this premium service attracts a small fee.

The ability to choose between these two service options certainly provides organisations with flexibility when it comes to selecting the best service level however, the Ministry requires an organisation to choose a service level for all of their checks and it is necessary to pre-purchase their annual estimated number of checks.

This arrangement is far from ideal for companies that have a range of needs for their Ministry of Justice Checks.
For companies that want to save time and money, going straight through the MoJ for an NZ police check is unlikely to yield the optimal result.


Is there a more flexible option for online police checks in New Zealand?
