Best Practice

When you scan or take a picture of a document, please make sure that

  • the text is clear and readable
  • all four corners are visible
  • if it’s an ID, it’s in full color

All documents we receive must be valid (not expired).

For example:

The document is complete, signed, easily readable, and well lit. The ID is clear and in full color.
