2. Age Identification

To ensure that a person wishing to purchase alcohol is 18 years or over, a staff member will ask for evidence of age (or ID). 

Our regulations state that there are only three forms of evidence that are permitted - any of these below can be used as evidence of age:

  1. current passport
  2. current New Zealand drivers licence
  3. Hospitality New Zealand Card (Kiwi Access Card)

These documents must be genuine and not falsified in any way.  There are a range of offences relating to evidence of age documents - read here for more.
