Tips for photographing your ID documents

  • Updated

When using your mobile device to take a photo of your ID, please be sure to:

  • Place the ID on a dark surface
  • Use natural lighting instead of a flash to capture the picture (ideally near a window)
  • Take the photo directly above the ID and avoid casting shadows across your ID
  • Make sure you see all four edges of your ID in the image
  • Make sure all the information on the ID is clear & legible (not blurred)
