Valid identification needed for Digital certificates

To gain a Digital Certificate, applicants must provide a certified copy of an acceptable form of Government-produced photo identification.

In the past, some applicants have incorrectly supplied 18+ cards or birth certificates as proof of their identity but LINZ is unable to accept them.

There are only three forms of identification that LINZ can accept. These are:

  • current Drivers Licence
  • current Passport
  • current Firearms Licence.

A certified, legible photocopy of these is required to sign up to Landonline. LINZ can not accept the identification if it is expired nor can we accept 18+ cards or any other type of identification.
