In addition to providing the minimum four identity documents, the applicant 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 that you are the person in your 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.
