What documents do I need to set up a profile?

UK residents

For UK residents we use electronic identification (E-ID) to verify your identity, which involves checking your details against databases such as the Electoral Roll. This is sufficient in around 80% of cases.

Non-UK residents (and UK residents who fail E-ID)

Non-UK residents and UK residents who fail E-ID will need to provide:
1 current piece of personal identification 
  • Passport
  • National Identity Card (Front and back)
  • Driving Licence (Front and back)
  • Residence permit
  • Visa
1 proof of address
  • Bank statement
  • Utility bill (not a mobile telephone bill)
  • Council tax letter
  • Mortgage statement
  • Credit card statement
  • Residency card
  • Driving licence (can't be used for both proof of ID and proof of address)
All documents must be dated within the last three months. Documents can be PDF downloads or photos / scans of original copies.
