What are the valid forms of ID in New Zealand?

  • Updated

In line with the New Zealand laws, Sherpa accepts FOUR forms of identification for age-restricted products. These are:

  • Any current passport
  • A current New Zealand driver licence
  • A Hospitality NZ 18+ Card. 
  • A Kiwi Access Card

Please note - new 18+ Cards are no longer available but existing 18+ Cards continue to be a valid ID for 10 years from the date of issue.


Be sure to remember that forms of ID provided for deliveries with Sherpa cannot be expired. If a recipient provides you with an expired form of ID and cannot provide another valid form, the delivery needs to be returned to the sender.
