  • Planned maintenance Sunday 21 July 2024 7am to 12pm

    Maintenance is being completed on the Identity Verification Service on Sunday 21 July 2024 7am to 12pm.

    You will not be able to apply for, manage or use your RealMe verified identity during this time. Photo capture services will also be unavailable online and at participating photo stores.

    We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

    The RealMe login service can continue to be used as usual.

RealMe Login

Real access.

If you need to interact with Government agencies, a RealMe login gives you access to your personal Inland Revenue account and enables you to update your company details, apply for a visa, access a student loan or allowance and lots more. You can use one login to access the online services you use with Government agencies - no more having to remember multiple usernames and passwords!

Create a RealMe login at the site of the Government service you wish to use.

Where to use RealMe

RealMe verified identity

The real deal.

You can use a RealMe verified identity in situations where people must know who they’re dealing with before they can help you. Use a RealMe verified identity to open a bank account, enrol to vote and do a whole lot more.

Prove who you are

A Government-grade service

No doubt about it.

For a decade now, RealMe has offered Government-grade login and identification verification services that New Zealand citizens and residents recognise and can absolutely trust. In an age of fakes and identity uncertainty, you can depend on the official identity credential from the New Zealand Government.
