Australia Post has updated the design of its Keypass ID card with the new look card being made available as of 2 October.

The Keypass card is a valid ID used to verify proof of age and identity throughout Australia, and is a common ID used by patrons over 18 years of age to enter licensed premises or to purchase liquor (excludes WA).

From 2 October 2017, the design of the card has been updated and liquor retail outlets and licensed venues throughout Australia (excludes WA) will begin to see patrons presenting both the old and new cards as an accepted form of ID.

A statement issued by Australia Post has asked that venues and retail liquor outlets “make sure you and your staff are aware of the changes”.

“Please share with your staff the upcoming change in design and the continued acceptance of existing Keypass cards as well as the new cards pictured above,” said the statement.

The new cards display the exact same identity details as the previous design including customer name, date of birth, the person’s photo, residential address and unique Keypass card number for authenticity. In addition, the new Keypass will display a QR code and a unique CVV field.

Keypass has been approved by Liquor Commissions across Australia (excludes WA) to purchase alcohol and enter licensed venues.
