Ready to Apply?

Things to check before you start

  1. Have you read the criteria carefully for the Card Type you wish to apply for?
  2. Do you have the right qualifications for the card you’re applying for? You'll also find these listed in the Card Types section under each card
  3. You must pass the ECS H&S assessment before you apply if you don’t already have it, or hold a valid exemption (if allowed by the card type being applied for).
  4. You will need a passport style photograph.

To get started...

Register or Login to MyECS where you can start your application

We recommend you get all your qualifications and certificates ready before you start the application process, as you'll need to upload scans or good quality photographs of these during the application.
