Middle names do impact KYC results particularly when it comes to government IDs. Below is a general rule on how the middle name being present and it’s format impacts the result of a check.
|Check Type / Document||Summary||Related documents|
|AU Driver’s License||Driver's licenses are more lenient when it comes to middle name matching. DVS doesn't check the middle name on driver's licenses|
|Passports in AU||Passport matching is pretty strict when it comes to name matching.|
It requires the name exactly as it is on the passport, so if there’s a middle name collect it from the applicant
|AU Medicare card||Middle names on medicare cards are tricky to say the least.|
The details need to be provided as exactly as it is on the medicare card taking into account whether the middle name on it is an initial , the full middle name or no middle name at all.
