Australian ID to get into Pubs/Clubs?
- 7 responses so far
I know that my husband hard a hard time ordering alcohol and getting into certain places. It was hit and miss. Seems that the bigger places with more tourist were more likely to accept an out of country license
I have used both NSW drivers licence and passport while getting into clubs overseas…best bet take your passport
I agree, go the passport, wouldnt want to be leaving it in the hotel room anyway! And on my 24 days of touring, didnt see anyone get in on a licence. :-)
I don’t think they will allow you to use an international student card to get into bars/clubs. I don’t think you will have any trouble getting in a bar/club if you look like you are over 21 with your drivers license.
WHen i was in Vegas in 2008 I took my 18+ card, passport and licence. THey do not except 18+ in USA. I would suggest take both your passport and DRivers licence.
Passport is the best way to go if you want to be “guaranteed” entry.
Although, if travelling around Australia, you might have an idea of what another state’s licence looks like, bouncers and doormen overseas can’t possibly know what every licence or ID card from around the world looks like, hence why it is sometimes harder to get in. They don’t know if what you’re showing them is real or not but they do know what a passport looks like!
