it's not that hard and if you use IRD or most other Govt Departments its makes sense to have one id that can be used in all sites
I researched the rigmarole to get a RealMe ID and went nah! can't be bothered.
The Ministry of Health's decision to require RealMe in the first place is nuts.
Surely, if the objective is to make it as easy and as transparent as possible for the most number of people to register at the most number of locations ...
... the last thing you would do is put in place a process as onerous as applying for a passport.
(and yet they did!)
