As part of the .au direct domain eligibility requirements, the auDA registry mandates that all individual applicants must have their registrant information and Australian presence verified prior to registration. Because the identity validation process is carried out by a third-party organisation, a non-refundable validation fee is added on top of the domain registration fee that you will incur during the domain checkout process.
