Passport Checks for New Zealand and Australia now available


Identity checking is increasingly important. Many tenants do not have a drivers license and the next most common form of ID is a passport.

Here are some interesting stats..

  • Around 3000 NZ passports are reported stolen each year
  • Another 10,000 NZ passports are reported lost each year.
  • A New Zealand passport is reported to be worth around $10,000 on the black market.

The process to check a passport..

  • On the Tenant check page choose 'Passport' as the form of ID
  • You will then need the passport number and expiry date.
  • Once these are inputted the option for 'Passport Verification' will show in the Tenant Check fields bottom of page.

Good practise: Always ask if you can photograph a persons ID. 
                          Reference from that information when inputting the tenant check page.
