What is proof of identity?

In order to verify your account, we will require a copy of your valid passport or both sides of your government-issued identification card. Alternatively, we accept a voter’s card or a driver’s licence (front and back sides).
We also accept any bills that are issued by a financial institution, a utility company, a government agency or a judicial authority. If your bill or document is available online, you may send it to [email protected] either as a PDF file or as a screenshot which includes the URL page.

This copy must contain:

  • Identification Number

For Nigeria, we also accept NINS (National Identity Management System), though we also require a Birth Certificate as a complimentary document to verify the date of birth.
What will not be accepted:
