It only costs me $20, and a passport sized photo. All the information that a New Zealander needs is available at the AA. However, I will make one complaint – the AA charge you $20 to go in and process it manually in store, $30 if you post it in (cause of course its more expensive for them to open an envelope rather than have the entire infrastructure of a building for me to wait in), and $40 to handle an online application, where I do all the work (scanning drivers license, and photos), and they just print the stuff out – they receive the data on a file server, and don’t even need to open an envelope.
Way to embrace the digital age, slackers. That sort of stuff just makes me angry.
