1) Prepare TWO pieces of ID

They must be valid and issued by a recognized governmental entity (only original IDs are accepted).

  • The primary ID must include, in addition to a photo and signature, the first(s) & last(s) name, and the birth date
    as it appears on the subscription form.
  • The secondary ID must reasonably mention the first(s) and last(s) name.

Only the IDs below are accepted:

2) Test the readability of the pieces of ID using your camera
