Answer 3 quick questions to make sure you can prove your identity and apply for your Check online. 

Question 1

To do the Check fully online, you'll need two ID documents. One must have a photo.

Tip: The best combination is a passport and drivers licence.

To begin, you must have one of the following ID documents:

  • Australian passport (current or expired less than 3 years)
  • Current foreign passport (with linked visa)
  • Australian birth certificate
  • ImmiCard

Do you have one these identity documents?

Yes

No

Question 2

Your second ID document must be a:

  • Current Australian drivers licence
  • Medicare card (only if you don't have a drivers licence)

The names on your two documents must match. If they don't, you must show a name change certificate or marriage certificate issued by an Australian Births, Deaths and Marriages registry. Documents must be in good condition. Damaged or worn-out documents won't work.

Do you have an Australian drivers licence or Medicare card and proof if your name has changed?

Yes

No

Question 3

Even if you start your application on a computer, you'll need a smartphone to prove your identity online. It doesn't matter what brand, as long as it's not too old.

You must be able to take a picture of yourself with your phone and upload it.

Do you have (or can you borrow) a phone less than 5 years old?

No
