What is an ASIC?

An ASIC is a form of airport identification that allows you to work in an airside or sterile area. It also provides swipe access to restricted areas of the airport and is required to be worn at all times. It is generally required by airline staff, retail staff, contractors and maintenance providers.

If you are an ASIC applicant

For an overview of all five steps in the online application process see the ASIC Online overview guide.

Useful information to help you during the application process:

  • You can commence your application, save it, and return at any time.

  • Once you have submitted an application you cannot amend it in any way.
  • Once you have submitted your application you can track the progress by logging back into the online system and viewing its current status

Background Checks
Background checks only commence after approval of your application and payment has been made. These checks can take anywhere between 4 and 6 weeks.

Payment of $230 (price subject to change) will be required once your application has been approved by your employer. You will be notified via email to make this payment, which can be made by credit card online via our secure payment gateway.

If your employer has an arrangement to pay on your behalf you will not be notified of the requirement to make a payment.

Notification by email
Progress of your application will be notified via email. Ensure that you add to your approved senders list so this notification does not go to your junk mail.

Once approved you will receive a confirmation email advising you that your ASIC is ready for collection.

You can collect your card from Security Services between 8:00am and 3:00pm, Monday to Friday (except for scheduled closures). Security Services is located at:

Building 219

Melbourne Airport

If you are delayed in collecting your card make contact with Security Services on 9297 1872 or [email protected] and advise us of your intention in regards to your approved ASIC application.

To ensure the process for collecting your ASIC is as seamless as possible:

  • ​Complete induction – ensure you have undertaken and completed the Melbourne Airport Fundamentals of Airport Awareness Induction. Instructions on how to do this can be found here. Please bring a printed copy of the results with you. If you don’t have access to a printer, advise Security Services when collecting your ASIC.
  • Bring original documentation – bring along with you all of the originals of the documentation that you uploaded to support your application. This includes police check from overseas if required. The ASIC cannot be issued unless Security Services sight original documentation.
  • Bring existing ASIC or visitor pass – if you have an existing ASIC and are renewing, or have a visitor pass, please return these when collecting your new ASIC.
  • Photograph – be prepared to have a new photograph taken for your new ASIC.

Expired ASIC
Return any expired ASIC to:
Security Services
Locked Bag 16
Tullamarine VIC 3043

Misplaced ASIC
Obtain a Statutory Declaration from any police officer, Justice of the Peace or pharmacist outlining that you have lost your ASIC. This then needs to be sent to our office via post or delivered in person to Security Services.

Left ASIC at home
Obtain a visitor pass for the day to enable you to enter into sterile areas. Note that if you are working on a visitor pass you will need to be under escort by an ASIC holder for the duration of your time at work.

Report loss immediately to Security Services (8am – 3pm) on 03 9297 1872 or the Integrated Operations Centre (after hours) on 03 9297 1600.

Changing jobs
Notify Security Services of your change of employment so your ASIC and access can be updated.

Change your access
If your ASIC doesn’t open a door you will need to request access to this area via [email protected] outlining the specific reader number and reason for the access. This email is to come from your direct manager or company representative.

Providing access to others
This is a breach of the terms and conditions that you as an ASIC holder agreed to. Any person caught allowing others to tailgate an open door or using someone else’s ASIC will be banned from working at Melbourne Airport. Penalties may also apply.
