The VCGLR has advised that the new Keypass in Digital iD from Australia Post is now acceptable form of iD for entry to licensed premises.
Licensees can check the Digital iD is valid in three ways:
- Sight: Match the patron’s face to the photon their Digital iD profile and check the 18+Keypass badge to verify they are over 18and view their verified date of birth.
- Shake: Ask the patron to simply shake their phone or tap their Digital iD profile photo to activate screenshot protection – this displays an animation, confirming the Digital iD is not a screenshot.
- Scan: Online Scantek machines can scan the QR code on the Keypass screen to confirm the authenticity of the iD. For venues not using Scantek, it will soon be possible to verify the authenticity of the iD by scanning the QR code using another Digital iD.
LBA encourages venue partners to ensure that all staff and contracted security personnel are aware of this valid iD update.
