Domestic flights within Australia departing from an international terminal

Some domestic flights depart from an international terminal. Check your itinerary carefully to find out which terminal you’re leaving from. If you’re departing from an international terminal, you’ll need to show photographic ID. It must be valid and include your full name.

Accepted ID types are:

  • Passport (non-Australian passengers must show a passport as ID)
  • A driver’s licence issued by the Commonwealth of Australia or an Australian state or territory
  • An aviation security card issued by the operator of the aircraft or the operator of an airport in Australia
  • A document that identifies you, issued by:
    • The Commonwealth of Australia
    • An Australian state or territory
    • An authority of the Commonwealth of Australia or an Australian state or territory

Non-photographic ID will only be accepted for infants travelling with an adult who presents photographic ID. In this case a birth certificate is acceptable.
