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:
- current passport
- current New Zealand drivers licence
- Hospitality New Zealand 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.
