About Keypass

Keypass is accepted as proof of age for entry into licensed venues throughout Australia (excluding WA) which display a sign^ saying they accept the card as proof of identity.

What if you're under age?

You can apply for a Keypass Under-18 card instead. It's ideal for events like under-age gigs, concerts and festivals where you may need to show photo ID.

Please note: If you're under 17 years and 11 months old when you apply for a Keypass over-18 card, we'll only be able to issue you with an Under-18 card.

All cards expire after 5 years, or when you turn 18 (whichever comes first). If you still need an identity card after this date, you can apply for a new one.

Get your card sent with Express Post

For an additional fee, we offer Express Post delivery# when you apply for a new or replacement Keypass card.
