What forms of identification are required to support my application?

A document is a primary identification document for somebody if it is:

  1. a certified copy (that is, a copy certified by a Registrar of Births or similar officer to be a correct copy) of the entry, in a register of births, of his or her birth; or
  2. a copy (certified under section 44 of the Australian Citizenship Act 1948) of a citizenship certificate granted to him or her; or
  3. a document issued to him or her under the law of another country that is evidence, under that law, that he or she is a citizen of that country; or
  4. a passport* issued to him or her.

* Note: It is the Department's policy that a passport cannot be used as a primary identification document if the expiry date of the passport is greater than 2 years preceding the date of the presentation by the MSIC applicant as a primary identification document. Other primary identification documents will need to be supplied by the MSIC applicant if this is the case.

A document is a secondary identification document for somebody if:

  1. it has on it a recent photograph of him or her, or his or her signature; and
  2. it is:
    1. a licence (for example, a driver's licence) issued to him or her under a law of the Commonwealth or a State or Territory; or
    2. a government employee identification document issued to him or her; or
    3. an Australian student identification document issued to him or her; or
    4. a verifiable reference.

A document is a tertiary identification document for somebody if:

  1. it sets out his or her name and address; and
  2. it is:
    1. a signed statement by his or her employer or former employer about that employment; or
    2. a copy (certified by a Registrar of Titles or similar officer to be a correct copy) of a record issued under a law about land titles; or
    3. a document issued by a rating authority from its records about land ownership or occupation; or
    4. a document issued by a bank or similar financial institution from its records about a mortgage or other security that he or she gave to the bank or institution; or
    5. an extract from the electoral roll compiled by the Australian Electoral Commission; or
    6. a record issued under a law in force in Australia other than a law about land titles
