How do I take a valid photo of my ID?

In order to successfully verify your photo ID, we recommend the following tips.


  • Natural light works best.
  • Place ID on a plain surface
  • Place ID on a flat surface.
  • Take the picture from the right distance. Make sure all four corners are visible in the image with enough margin on all sides. 
  • Make sure ID is not expired.
  • Make sure you remove dust and dirt by wiping ID. 


  • No busy backgrounds.
  • No glare or shadow visible. Try indirect light.
  • Hold your camera steady so there is no blur.
    • Avoid angling or holding the ID in your hand.
