Access NI

Access NI

In order to observe the requirements for social distancing, Access NI (ANI) have altered the requirements for ID checks. The procedure for Access NI applications, as of 23rd March 2020, is as follows:

Access NI applications: complete the online application per instructions on the link below and fill in the usual ANI Application ID Form with the required details. Instead of doing your ID check with another person you must scan your application form AND the correct required IDs as a PDF document. Email this to Ruth McQuillan at using the subject line ANI application.

Access NI and Garda Vetting applicants should be aware that a criminal conviction does not automatically bar an applicant from obtaining a position – all decisions are based on the Swim Ireland Vetting Policy

If payment and/or ID validation form is not received within 21 days your application will be invalid.
