Proof of Identity

What is a Proof of Identity form?

If you are applying for your Criminal Conviction History from the Ministry of Justice - either for yourself or for an employer - you will need to provide one of the following forms of ID:

  • New Zealand driver licence (current or expired within the last 2 years),

  • New Zealand passport (must be signed and can be current or expired within the last 2 years),

  • Overseas passport (must be signed and current).

If you don't have any of these, you'll need to ask someone to confirm your identity. They do this by filling in a Proof of Identity form. 

The person who identifies you must:

✓  Have known you for more than 12 months
✓  Be aged 18 years or over
✓  Have a day time phone number and be contactable during normal business hours
✗  Not be a relative (a relative is a person connected by blood or marriage), and
✗  Not live at the same address.
