Blue Cards: Applying and Renewing Online

Blue Cards: Applying and Renewing Online

From 31 August 2020, to apply for a blue card you will need a customer reference cumber (CRN) and photo from the Department of Transport and Main Roads. A CRN is the number on your driver licence, photo identity card or proof-of-age card. TMR has a list of other documents where your CRN can be found.

Blue Card Services will work with TMR to verify your identity and obtain the photo to use on your blue card. 

When the new laws start, you will be able to apply or renew your blue card online. This will mean a faster approval time for most applicants.

Hello Lynde, can you tell me if there is a cost applicants (church volunteers and ministry agents) need to pay for the photo from TMR? Can we use the usual photocopy of our driver's licence if we already have a Blue Card?

Hi Marg,
I believe that the drivers license is suitable at this stage. I would be surprised if there was a cost give that blue cards are free for students and volunteers. It would probably be worthwhile to contact Blue Card services directly to check with them. I have provided information from their website below:
