*Proof of Identity: At least two forms of identification must be produced to validate the identity of the applicant when completing the application.  One of these should be photographic where possible.  There is a points system for the verification of identity where 100 points must be reached.  Different forms of identification are weighted with a sliding scale of points (see below).  Where an individual cannot reach 100 points an affidavit witnessed by a Commissioner for Oaths will suffice.  The National Vetting Bureau requires that copies of all proof of identity are retained for the validity of the vetting.  This means if the vetting lasts 3 years then copies of these documents must also be kept for 3 years.
