Self-Captured Photo

In addition to providing the minimum of four identity documents, applicants must also provide a self-captured photo of themselves holding their photo ID.

This is a legal requirement by the Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission (ACIC) to ensure that the applicant presenting the identity documents is the person to which the documents relate.

Instructions for applicants:

Essentially, you need to prove you are the person in the photo ID:

  • Take a self-captured photo (selfie) of yourself holding your photo ID
  • Ensure this is a headshot
  • Ensure the photo ID you are holding is clear and readable

Now upload this photo in addition to the other ID documents as part of your application.
