Aviation Security Identification Card (ASIC)


It is a requirement to return all expired, suspended or cancelled ASICs and VICs to Hobart Airport.

What is an ASIC?

An ASIC is a form of airport identification that is evidence you have a valid background check and allows you to be approved to conduct unsupervised work in an airside or sterile area. It is required to be worn at all times and valid for up to two years.

How to apply for an ASIC

1. Complete ONE of the Hobart Airport application forms:

  • Red/Grey ASIC Application
    A Red or Grey ASIC is required by any person who needs unescorted access to secure and/or airside areas of the airport.
  • White ASIC Application
    A White ASIC is required for any person who is employed within a security-sensitive role that requires a detailed background check only, which does not include on-airport access. Examples are: Known Consignor Scheme participants, Regulated Air Cargo Agent (RACA), Accredited Air Cargo Agent (RACA), Visitor Identification Card issuer or Foreign Official.
  • Replacement ASIC Application
    A Replacement ASIC is required if the current and valid ASIC is damaged, defaced, lost or stolen card. Other reasons for replacement ASIC are: changing location, colour or the holders name has changed. A Statutory Declaration will be required.

2. Read the AusCheck Privacy Notice and ASIC holder obligations.

3. Complete the ASIC Awareness Presentation (not required for White ASIC)

  • You will need to be registered in our training system first. Go to Training and induction and complete the registration form.

4. Prepare all of your original identification documents to present with your application at a face-to-face appointment.

  • Identification documents must be original, government issued and be an exact name match.
  • A photo will be taken at the face-to-face appointment.
  • If the application is for an Australia-wide card (AUS), include a supporting letter with the application. This must be on company letterhead, signed by a company authorised person, stating the name of all ports where access is required, the frequency of access and the operational need for access at those ports.
