KIWI ACCESS CARD

Have you heard of the Kiwi Access Card? It is designed to give those without access to a valid passport or driver licence a convenient way to prove their identity and age. The card is recognised across New Zealand, it can fit neatly in a wallet and features the cardholder’s photo on the front.

Even if you are well past the stage in the life of getting asked for ID to access age-restricted goods and services, there are still some important things that you may need proof of identity for, such as opening a bank account. The Kiwi Access Card can make this a lot easier.

It is also helpful for those who are blind or have low vision as the Kiwi Access Card includes braille features for safety and security.

The Kiwi Access Card costs $55 including GST and is valid for 10 years from the issue date.
