We will be making changes to the RealMe Privacy Statement effective from 4 July 2022. The changes cover improvements we're making to the login service as well as making it easier to read.
Planned Maintenance: Access to all RealMe services will be impacted from 10pm Saturday 2 July until 3.30am Sunday 3 July whilst we undertake a planned upgrade. In the unlikely event that an unexpected issue is encountered, the outage window may be extended to 7.30am Sunday 3 July. If you experience issues, please try again later. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

If you apply with a NZ passport or citizenship certificate you'll have the option to take your own photo using the camera on your phone, laptop, tablet or desktop.
If you apply using birth or immigration documents you'll need to get your photo taken for free at a participating photo store.
