We'll ask you for the following information during the application process:
1. Details of the person named on the certificate
At minimum, you'll be asked for:
- Given name
- Family name
- Date of birth
2. Proof of your identity
You may be able to prove your identity online. If not, you can still prove your identity by mailing certified copies to us.
One of the easiest ways to prove your identity is by presenting your driver licence (if it confirms your residential address) and your Passport.
Alternatively, there are other ways to prove your identity.
3. Proof that you're eligible to get the certificate
If you're applying for your own certificate, you only need to provide proof of your identity.
If you're applying for someone else's certificate, you also need to prove that you're authorised to do so. Read the ‘Get someone else’s certificate’ tab on this page.
