Verification Documents

This page outlines what we require for verification.  It is also outlines what is required for ‘alternative verification’.  If you are using alternative documents and they are certified and ready to go, send them through to us by raising a helpdesk ticket.

If you are living in Australia but do not have an Australian passport or valid driver’s licence, we can still verify your account, as long as you can supply us with certified documents as per the options below.

All options – Certification by a trusted referee

Any of the above documents provided to us need to be verified by a trusted referee. The trusted referee must sight the original documentary identification, and make a statement to the effect that the documents provided are a true copy and represent the identity of the individual applying for verification.

Certification must include the trusted referees name, phone number, signature, and their capacity to act as a trusted referee (see the list below). The certification must be dated, and must have been carried out in the three months preceding the verification application.
