Proof of Identity

You must provide sufficient evidence of your identity when you submit your application for registration.

Once registered, you may also be required to provide sufficient evidence of your identity when a criminal history check is required by a National Board.

Identity documents provided to AHPRA are valid for a period of ten years.

Your identity documents must be certified as true copies of original documents and state the photograph on photographic documentation (e.g. licence or passport) is a true likeness of the applicant.

For more information, see Certifying documents. 

National Boards use the Document Verification Service (DVS) to confirm that the details on identity document match the records held by the government authority that issued the document.
