Broadford and Puckapunyal post offices are two of more than 120 post offices to have received a digital upgrade as Australia Post rolls out a new set of identity services across Victoria.
More than half of all post offices across the state are now one-stop shops for digital identity services such as Tax File Number applications, identity photos, Land Title ID checks and Working with Children checks.
Overseeing the roll-out of the secure, real-time submission processes was Victorian state manager Roger Revere, who said they were delighted to see more Victorian customers with access to these new services.
‘‘Previously, all of these applications had to be done in hard copy,’’ he said.
‘‘For example, customers would have to bring their own photos with them or arrange a separate appointment to have their pictures taken. This meant longer processing times for some customers and it was less convenient.
‘‘We think that local Mitchell Shire residents will be really pleased at how quickly and securely they can get things done with this digital upgrade.’’
