Frequently Asked Questions

Video identification
As a financial institution we need to know who you are. We are legally required to verify your identity to upgrade your account to Standard and a full access to the features and services of iCard. Our video ID verification procedure is a legally-compliant remote identification process. It is designed to comply with the latest banking regulations and laws, as well as the Anti Money Laundering (AML) Act.
You can verify your identity in a 5-minute informal video chat with one of our friendly operators. They will guide you through the steps during the video call. Make sure you are in a quiet place with a good light and have a valid ID document with you before you start the chat. We will ask you to show the document during the video chat and answer some questions. Before the verification begins, we’ll check whether your internet connection is strong enough. We suggest using Wi-Fi to prevent your call being dropped.
Some IDs do not state your address, just your identity. To validate the missing information and therefore - your identity, we may ask you to provide us with additional certificates such as a bank statement or utility bill. Please ensure that all the text on the picture is readable and don’t apply partial documents. As soon as our team approves your record you will be able to log in to your iCard account.
