You’ll be notified about your application in just a few minutes (5-10min)! Check your notification inbox if your application has been approved or declined. You can also check your email inbox.

Note:

  • There is a lifetime limit of 5 verification attempts for each user!
  • If you have not received an answer within 24 hours, it means that your document is going through manual verification. Manual verification may take more than 2 days (2-7 days).
  • Due to Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, manual verification processing times may be longer than usual (3-10 days). Thank you for your patience.
