ID and Access Services FAQs

What happens if my ASIC or VIC is lost, stolen, defaced or destroyed?

You must notify and provide the issuing authority with a statutory declaration within seven days of becoming aware of the loss, theft or destruction of your ASIC.

If you do not notify and provide the issuing authority with a statutory declaration within seven days, you could be issued with a Sydney Airport aviation security notice to attend an interview.  You may have to resit a security awareness test. Your ASIC and access could be suspended or cancelled.

You could also be fined a maximum penalty of $1100 by the Office of Transport Security and lose your right to work at the airport.
