What is proof of address / residence?

In order to verify your account, we will require a recent proof of address document, such as a utility bill or bank statement.

This document must be issued in the name of the BDSwiss account holder within the last 3 months, and must contain the following information:

  • Your name
  • Your current residential address
  • Date of issue
  • The details of the issuer

We 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 us either as a PDF file, or as a screenshot.

Proof of address/residence can be one of the following:

  • Electricity, water, gas, internet or telephone bill
  • Bank statement / credit card statement / bank reference letter
  • Tax letter / Council tax bill (for the current year)
  • Social insurance statement
  • Electronic statements with the URL visible
  • Government-issued Certificate of Residence or notarized Affidavit of Residence

If you do not have Residence documents in your name, please note that you could also send a Certificate of Residence of your Municipality or a Letter of Confirmation duly signed by a local authority enclosing your name/ surname, your current address and a recent date.

If you do not have any of the above, please provide us with an official document that states your name and residential address or send an email to [email protected] and inform us about this so that we assist you further.

What will not be accepted?

  • Invoices for purchasing goods
  • Receipts
  • Insurance bills
  • Handwritten bills
  • Road tax
  • Documents with low-resolution or low quality
  • Documents enclosed in envelopes
  • Half or torn documents

Please keep in mind that on the occasion of an “outdated” verification document (older than 12 months), we will contact you to provide us with a copy of the updated document.
