Existing yellow card holder

What happens when my yellow card or yellow card exemption is about to expire?

You can apply for a disability worker screening check up to three months before the expiry of your yellow card or yellow card exemption. To keep working while your application is processed, it needs to be submitted and verified by your employer before your card expires. If you fail to do so, you may be subject to ‘no card, no start’ rules which will require you to stop working until you receive a clearance.

How do I apply?

If you have an existing yellow card or yellow card exemption and there is three months or less remaining on your clearance you can apply now.


To assist you in the management of your clearance and to comply with your legislative notice obligations, the following forms are available for you to download as needed:
