Where to apply for your Kiwi Access Card - Bay of Plenty

Kiwi Access Card is the new, revamped 18+ Card, and is now available nationwide. It can be used as a photographic evidence of age and identity card, to gain access to goods and services, and is accepted across New Zealand. 18+ Cards remain valid until their individual expiry date, which you can find on the front of the card.

You can apply for your Kiwi Access Card via your local NZ Post outlet. Please see the list of NZ Post outlets below that are currently accepting applications. Please note, this list is up to date and accurate to the best of our knowledge, but is subject to change.

To apply for your Kiwi Access Card you will need:

  • A passport-sized photograph. If you don’t have one you can get one taken at selected PostShops (for a fee) when you apply.
    Please refer to photo requirements here.
  • Proof of your address.
  • Photo ID to prove who you are, this can be your:
    • 18+ Card or Kiwi Access Card (current or has expired less than two years ago)
    • Passport (current or has expired less than two years ago)
