Electronic identification

This section allows us to verify your identity electronically, so you don’t need to bring the documents into an office. You will need your Australian Passport, Australian Drivers Licence or Medicare Card. If you do not want to verify your identification electronically, you will need to provide identification documents at a later stage.
