How to certify a document
Certified documents need to have been certified in New Zealand in the last three months.
For a document to be certified, it must sighted, signed, dated, and include the full name of one of the following people:
member of the police
registered medical doctor
minister of religion
New Zealand honorary consul
member of parliament
It must also include the following statement from the certifier: “This is a certified true copy of the original as sighted by me and is of true likeness to the individual.”
Certified documents need to be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’ll let you know when your ID has been verified. We may ask you to provide a bank statement to verify your ID—we’ll email you to request this directly. If we don’t receive the additional information needed to verify your ID within 14 days, we’ll place a temporary freeze on your account.
