    Centrix SmartID (electronic identity verification)

    You can easily obtain a low-cost independent verification of a client’s identity information via our partner Centrix.

    Centrix connects to the DIA and NZTA for passport and driver licence verifications, many banks, finance and utility companies for proof of address, name and date of birth, and the full international World-Check PEP and sanctions databases. 


    In addition to the annual client subscription, the Centrix SmartID checks are charged per check, with a cost of:

    Smart ID with Driver Licence             $5.00 + GST

    Smart ID with Passport                      $6.00 + GST

    How to enable Centrix for Passport Checks

    In addition to completing & returning the above Centrix application form , the DIA requires an additional application form (below) as well as a copy of the firm's privacy policy along with the application to enable passport checks. 

    If there is not already a privacy policy implemented, a privacy policy generator is available here.

    Please return all forms to support@connectworks.com. We will advise when the function has been enabled in your account, this may take up to 30 days.

    In order for the DIA to process your application the form must be:
    1. Completed electronically
    2. Only the signature can be hand written 
    3. All questions must contain a response 

    The most common reasons for the DIA rejecting applications are:
    A box has been ticked in pen, or a response to a question is handwritten.
    Question 7 has been left blank. Examples of acceptable responses to this question are:
    Computers are password protected, Two factor authentication is used.
