Acceptance of Joint Card
It has come to the attention of the Fiji Revenue and Customs Service (FRCS) that Financial Institutions, Statutory Authorities, Educational Institutions and Employers are not accepting the Fiji National Provident Fund (FNPF)/ Fiji Revenue and Customs Service (FRCS) Joint Identification Card.
Concerns have been raised by members of the public that these institutions and organizations are refusing to accept the FNPF/FRCS Joint Card and instead request for a Tax Identification Number (TIN) letter as a mandatory requirement to open a new bank account, application for a driver’s license and for employment purposes.
The Service wishes to advise that either FNPF/FRCS Joint ID card or the TIN letter can be used for TIN requirement process.
Where a person has a FNPF/FRCS Joint ID card, a TIN letter is not required as we are phasing out issuing these letters.
The Joint ID card is a secure form of identification as it features a photograph of the applicant and contact details of the Service for verification purposes. The Joint ID card is applicable to all citizens of Fiji.
FRCS requests all organizations and institutions to accept the FNPF/FRCS Joint Card as a main form of identification.
