Spent Convictions

Applicants who have had a finding of guilt at some time in the past are to provide the following information with their application.

Failure to provide all of the requested information may result in significant delays in the processing of the application. In accordance with the Crimes Act 1914 (Cth), if you have been pardoned or sentenced to imprisonment for less than 30 months and you have not re-offended within 10 years (five years for juveniles), then the conviction is spent and although the offence would possibly not be taken into account (unless the offence was of such nature as to be regarded as serious) you MUST disclose that offence on your applications forms.

Provide the following details with your application if you have any conviction recorded against you:

  1. Details of the finding of guilt including: Penalty imposed, if any
  2. Copies of any receipts in relation to fines or other similar matters
  3. Copy of judgement, if any
  4. Letter from your lawyer / legal representative providing full details of the offence and penalties imposed
  5. Any other information which may assist DIAC in consideration of your application
