There are a few extra details we’ll need from you if you’re under 18.
Verifying your identity
If you’re under 18 and you don’t have two forms of identification (as listed above), we can accept a New Zealand birth certificate. Just make sure it’s the original version. You’ll still need to show proof of your address.
Verifying your address
If you don’t have a proof of address in your own name, we’ll also accept proof of address from your parent or guardian.
Proof of relationship
If you're under 16, we'll also need to see proof of the relationship between you and your parent or guardian, along with their ID. Proof of relationship could be:
- An original version birth certificate
- A Court Order
- A Letter from Oranga Tamariki - Ministry for Children.
Overseas tax details
In addition to the requirements for verifying your identification, if you’re under 16 your overseas tax details will need to be provided by your parent or guardian.
