How can you be vetted through the GAA?
Vetting for a member of the GAA involves 3 easy to follow steps as follows:
Step 1 The initial identification validation at Club level
You must in the first instance complete the GAA E-Vetting Identification Validation Form
This form compels you to provide proof of your identity to the Club Children’s Officer, who must verify that they have received the ID verification as required. The ID verification along with the E-Vetting Identification Validation Form is retained by the Club Children’s Officer for the duration of the e-vetting process or it may be attached by you at Step 2 to the Online E-Vetting application Form.
The primary purpose of this form is for you to provide your name, address, club, role for which you applied, and to present your ID (e.g. copy of your passport plus a utility bill showing your current address) plus a valid email address for future reference. The full list of documents which are accepted for verification can be found here

Step 2 Completing the EVetting Application form
Once you complete the GAA on-line E-Vetting Application Form the information provided is forwarded to the NVB by the GAA and you will receive an on-line NVB Vetting Form to complete. Please do not contact the National Vetting Bureau (NVB) regarding your application as they are unable to deal with individual requests from GAA applicants. If you have a query regarding your application please contact the GAA and not the National Vetting Bureau.
The details entered on your GAA Evetting Form will be emailed back to you, for your own records. Your Club Secretary will also receive an email informing him/her that you have applied as a member of the club, to be issued with the NVB Vetting Application Form.

Completing this form is a confidential matter between you and the NVB. All sections of the form including current and previous addresses, email address and contact telephone numbers, information on convictions and prosecutions (if any), plus other information will be required when completing the form.
Once all sections of the form have been answered this then completes your application process for E Vetting in the GAA and within a short period of time you shall be contacted by the GAA to informing you as to the outcome of the vetting application.
You and your Club Secretary will be notified when the vetting process has been completed.
