Great!

Now, the next step before making a transaction or ordering a card will be verifying your identity for security purposes. This process will take only a few minutes to complete and will help us protect your account from any potential breaches in the future.

 

Verify your identity

To verify your identity, simply follow the instructions:

  1. Open the VIALET app.

Tap on ”Identify yourself and expand your capabilities with VIALET”, then click ”Next” on the pop-up. Here, you’ll need to add the source of your funds (the KYC requirement). Once that’s done, click next.

2. Write down your current mailing address.

We only ask this to qualify that you reside in one of the EEA countries, as VIALET is currently available in EEA only.

3. Scan your ID document.

First, from the drop-down list, select the country where your ID document was issued.

Next, you’ll be asked to give access to the camera – click ”Allow”. Then, tap ”Scan” to scan your ID or passport.

Bear in mind that you can only use a passport or ID card to identify yourself. Unfortunately, we do not support identification via driver’s license or any other personal identification documents, such as residence permits, etc.

4. Add a selfie.

Before you submit the photo, check that your head is in the middle of the frame, and no other people or objects appear in the background. The photo should also be of good quality and not blurry.

Take a photo and submit it.


Congratulations – you’re all set and ready to go!

Additional security

Ensuring complete virtual security is one of the key issues of today’s global market. For that reason, we handle this matter with the utmost care and gravity and as a part of our security measures, we may occasionally ask you to disclose your source of income. 

This is necessary because it’s required by law, which applies to every European financial institution. This particular legislation was adopted to prevent any money laundering as well as any terrorist act financing. You can find more information here, on page 20, section 28.
Put simply, we might ask you to provide us with an appropriate document depending on your source of income: business, securities, pension, allowance, stipend, salary, or cryptocurrencies, loans, sale of the property, inheritance, or savings. For further and more detailed information, please visit our website.
