Identification requirements for parents applying on behalf of children
In addition to providing proof of identity as per above, parents are also required to provide sufficient proof of their entitlement to make an application on behalf of a child. The provision of one or more of the following kinds of identification documents is also required:
- Identification in the childs name such as immunisation records, current passport, current photo sports club ID, library card; or
- Identification in the names of both the parent and the child such as birth certificate, medicare card or health insurance membership card
It should also be noted that while provision of some of the above forms of identification may provide sufficient proof to enable an application to be accepted, during the processing of a request it may be necessary for the department to make additional enquiries in order to be satisfied that an application is on behalf of a child.
Please contact the department to discuss the proof of identity requirements for other kinds of applications on behalf of children, persons with disabilities or deceased persons.
If you are required to pay an application or processing fee, include your cheque, money order or receipt number if you have paid a Receiver of Territory Monies.
Information Services will acknowledge your application upon receipt and contact you if further information is required.
From the date Information Services receives your application, the department has 30 days in which to respond, or will be considered to have refused access. If necessary, an extension of time may be negotiated with you.
