How does the process work?

You will be asked to scan a valid ID (passport, driver’s license or government issued ID) using your webcam. Please note that the driver’s license and ID need to be plastic cards to be recognised. You will also be asked to take a picture of your face to validate that it matches the picture on your document. See our ‘how it works’ page for a detailed step by step flow of what happens.
