Make sure you have agreed on the baby’s name. If you change the name after registering the baby you’ll be charged an extra fee.
Scan or take a clear photo of the
three forms of ID you’ll be using as identification for both parents. You’ll be asked to upload these during the registration process.
Make sure each ID document is saved on your computer as a
JPEG, PDF or TIFF file and that
each file is less than 4MB in size.
You must provide
three types of ID for each parent. You can provide:
Australian Birth Certificate
New Zealand Citizenship Certificate together with Passport
New Zealand Birth Certificate
