How to get ID certified?

Copies of your identification (ID) can assist with requesting your records

You may be asked to provide a ‘certified copy’ of your ID. This means that a qualified person has authorised the copy to prove it is a true copy of your original ID.

You may have to follow a different process to get your ID certified in different states and territories. There are specific requirements to get your ID certified in Queensland, read more in the Queensland specific fact sheet below. For all other states and territories read more about getting your ID certified in the national fact sheet below.
