How to get certified copies
When you submit a form, you need to provide certified copies of your identity documents.
A certified copy means an acceptable referee has endorsed the copy of your identity document.
Referees must be confident the copy of your identity document is a true copy of the original.
To certify a copy of your identity document, your referee needs to do all of the following:
- sight your original document and the copy
- write This is a true copy of the original as supplied to me on each copy
- sign their signature on each copy.
