Accepted documents and IDs

During the verification processes, you'll be asked to provide a photo of your ID. Coinmama accepts the following types of identification:

  • Driver's license
  • State-issued non-driver's license ID card
Due to the fact that Coinmama is unable to serve all 50 states, we ask our American users to provide a state-issued ID instead of a passport for level 1 verification. While we don't accept US passports or permanent residence cards for Level 1 Verification, we do accept them for Level 2. 
  • International passport
  • Government-issued national identity card, driver's license, or permanent residence card. These must contain English/Latin letters, and we do not accept paper or laminated ID cards.
We cannot accept:
Paper or laminated ID cards*, residence permits*, temporary paper US driver's licenses, black and white IDs, expired IDs, ID cards with holes or missing corners, IDs without English/Latin letters*, OFAC IDs, student IDs, gym membership cards, personal transit cards or benefit cards.

Valid IDs

Coinmama can only accept identification cards (ID) that are still valid—meaning they can't be expired. If your ID doesn't have an expiration date, check the box that indicates that your ID doesn't expire. 

If your ID expires after you've created your account, we'll send you a friendly reminder to update your documents.
