ID Verification

In order to progress your request, you will need to provide proof of identification using Jumio. This process requires a valid Passport, if you do not have a valid Passport please contact the DCC Service Centre on 1800 807008 in order to update your details.

Jumio is a quick and secure method of providing proof of identification. Using this tool, you can capture an image of your valid Passport and upload for verification. Your passport image will be scanned automatically by the tool. If a valid passport is detected, you will be prompted to continue with your application and submit a request to update your details. Once your request is submitted and all details are verified, your record will be amended, and you will be issued with a new Digital COVID Certificate.

The Jumio tool will not retain your passport image or any of your personal data once your request has been fully processed.
