Host - Police Checks & Working with Children Forms

HOMESTAY DIRECT SERVICES requires all homestay families to have a current Police Check for all adults over 18 years of age residing in your home.  Police checks are required for homestays that wish to host international students over 18 years of age.

You can obtain a form either from websites below or from local police stations.

If you are considering hosting students that are under 18 years of age we require you to obtain a Working with Children Check (WWC)  both for Victoria and NSW, if you reside in QLD you will need to obtain a Blue Card.

Please note that you are considered a volunteer and these applications are free of charge. Please send photocopies of your Police Check and/or Working with Children documents to our office for reference purposes.

It is important that you keep these checks up today and always provide a copy of your current certificates to our office. These can be emailed to jan@homestaydirect.com.au or mail to our office.

For more information regarding the tax-free status of income received as a Homestay Host, see the Australian Taxation Office website: http://www.ato.gov.au
