Officially, from today, JPs can expect to be presented with new application forms for the 18+, Evidence of Age document.
The new form is still issued by the Hospitality Association of New Zealand and processed at NZ Post’s PostShops.
The latest version of the application form has a fresh, modern design and it’s similar to the old one in that the same proof of identity is required together with a recent photo… along the applicant’s Statutory Declaration saying “everything in this form is true”.
JPs will find the Statutory Declaration is step 6 in the process, not with the wording “Statutory Declaration” as such, but look out for this…
Step 6 | Official statement that you are telling the truth…
which includes the usual “solemnly and sincerely declare…. etc” and wording designed to be easily understood by young people.
Old application forms will still be acceptable until supplies are exhausted. The 18+ card has also been redesigned.
