What documents can I use for Proof of Address?

To help ensure KYC acceptance, please read this guide on which documents are acceptable and which aren't

Tips to ensure acceptance

  • The document must contain your full name and home address. 
  • DO NOT take a screenshot of a mobile/computer screen upload the photo. If you received the document in the mail you should take a photo of it and upload the photo.  If you received the document electronically (e.g. PDF statement/bill from your bank or utility services provider) you should upload the file directly. 
  • DO NOT take a photo of an envelope with your address on it. You must take the document out of the envelope and the document (including all corners of it) must be visible in the photo. 
  • Proof of Address must be issued within the last 12 months.
  • You can use your ID document as proof of address, if it contains your home address information. But in this case, you will need to provide another ID document as your proof of identity. You can't use the same document to prove both your address and your identity.
  • The ID document you use for the ID check can be for a different country than what you use for proof of address. We realise people can live somewhere different to where they were born!
