Identity Matching Services
The Identity Matching Services compare the personal information on your identity document against existing government records, such as passports, driver licences and birth certificates. They can be used to help verify your identity, and in limited cases, to identify unknown people.
The services are provided through secure, online systems that operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
The services are provided through a partnership between the Australian Government, state and territory governments, under the Intergovernmental Agreement on Identity Matching Services (IGA).
