Identification requirements will change from 1 July 2019
We’re making changes to proof of identity requirements for aviation reference number (ARN) applications. This will help increase the number of ARNs issued automatically through the myCASA portal.
The changes remove the 100 point identification requirements for online ARN applications. Instead, applicants will now only need to use one of the following:
- Australian passport
- Australian birth certificate
- Australian citizenship certificate
- foreign passport.
Please note applicants who want to use a foreign passport will need to be in Australia at the time they lodge their ARN application, unless they are a permanent resident. Otherwise they will need to provide a certified copy of their passport. We highly recommend these applicants apply for their ARN after arrival in Australia, if possible.
If an applicant does not have one of these documents, they will need to complete and submit Form 1162 – Aviation Reference Number application. The form will require certified copies of 100 points of identification.
Note that applications with certified documents that require checking or that are submitted using Form 1162 will take about five days to process.
