Documents you need to enrol if you’re a New Zealand citizen
You need to provide documents that prove your identity and residency.
You can enrol in Medicare if you’re a New Zealand citizen. You’ll need to give us both:
- a New Zealand passport for each person you want to enrol
- 2 documents per family that prove you live in Australia.
Proving you live in Australia
You can prove you live in Australia by giving us either:
- 2 documents from Australia
- 1 document from Australia and 1 from where you last lived.
|Documents from Australia||Documents from the other country|
|Rental or lease agreement||Proof you sold your property|
|Bond receipt||Proof you ended your lease|
|Proof your job||Proof you ended your job|
|Proof your child’s in school or child care||Proof you moved household goods or furniture|
|A statement from your bank or health, property or contents insurance||A statement showing you closed your bank account|
|Gas, electricity, water or rates statement||Proof you cancelled health, property or contents insurance|
Documents must be original or certified copies. A certified copy is a document an authorised witness has signed as a correct copy.
If you don’t have these documents, tell us. We’ll talk to you about other options.
