COVID-19 Applications free of charge until December 2020

June 2020

Disclosure Scotland will continue to prioritise checks for workers in coronavirus (COVID-19) response sectors. Fees will continue to be waived for these priority workers until midnight on Friday 25 December 2020. This will mean that only the ARC Admin Fee will be applicable to these applications.

Please note:  that the above is a temporary measure and is solely for those who are being employed to help Scotland fight against coronavirus.

Disclosure Scotland is continuing to only process applications for workers who are deemed to be critical at this time.

The list of prioritised roles is as follows:

  • healthcare
  • pharmaceutical
  • childcare
  • social work
  • social care
  • prisons and justice
  • early years, primary and secondary education
