To begin with, IQ Option verification process is identical in all continents except Europe. Initially, we are going to see how to verify your trading account from EU for the reason that it is a bit more complicated.
At first, you need to be logged in to your iq option trading account. At the main page of the website you will see “Verify email address” alert. Press on this alert or on the “Verification” button underneath. After that, you will be redirected to the “Account Verification” menu where you will need to verify and complete the following: E-mail address, Phone number, Personal data and Trading experience.
E-mail confirmation is very simple. Just check the inbox of the email address which you have used for the registration on iq option broker. Over there you will see a unique code which you will use to confirm your email. Once you have entered the code – press on the orange “Continue” button. Note: You can request the code again or specify another email address. However, you may also skip this step, but we don’t recommend to do so for safety purposes.
The next step of verification is a phone number verify process. Here everything is simple as well. Just enter your mobile phone number and press on the orange “Get a code” button. Note: You may skip this step, but we don’t recommend to do so for safety purposes.
After that, you will receive a code on your mobile device. Enter the code in the empty field and press on the orange “Continue” button. Note: You may specify another number if you didn’t receive the code or send the code again in 5 minutes. However, you may also skip this step, but we don’t recommend to do so for safety purposes.
The Personal Data verification step is easy but a bit time consuming. Here you will need to fill in the following information:
10. Country of tax residence
11. TIN – Tax identification number
12. Check the box if you are a US reportable person
After all the information is fulfilled and double checked – press on the “Save and Continue” button. Note: You may fill in the TIN information after by pressing on the “Fill in later” button.
Finally, the last step of the IQ Option verification process. This part will be a sort of questionnaire where broker will ask you about your trading experience. Simply answer the questions and press on the “Continue” button after.
And here it is! You have finally completed the verification process! Now you may either make a Deposit or start trading on a demo account.
Once you have decided to make your first deposit on IQ Option broker, you will need to complete two more steps of verification: Proof of identity and Address of residence.
The Proof of identity section will require from you photo or colorful scan of your documents (Passport, ID or driving licence). Most importantly, the documents must be clearly visible and include the following information: Your full name, photo, date of birth, expiry date, document number and your signature. Nevertheless, the documents must be sent in JPG or PNG format and with weight of 8 MB of max size. IQ Option made it easier by attaching the explanatory video which you can watch before the documents will be uploaded. Once you have made the photo/scan of your documents – press on the “Upload documents” button. Note: You may attach the documents later. However, this is a necessary step so its would be better to do it now.
This section will require from you documents which will prove your address of residence. These documents are: bank statement, utility bill, credit card statement, phone bill and other. The document itself should clearly show the following: Your full name, date of issue, your address and all edges of the document. IQ Option made it easier by attaching the explanatory video which you can watch before the documents will be uploaded. Once you have made the photo/scan of your documents – select the type of the document which you will upload and press on the “Upload documents” button. Note: You may attach the documents later. However, this is a necessary step so its would be better to do it now.
When all 6 steps of IQ Option verification process will be done, you can safely start trading.
As I already mentioned before, if you are living in the EU, verification process will be more complicated. Consequently, IQ Option verification from all other continents is faster. There will be only 3 following steps: E-mail confirmation, Phone verification and Personal data. You may see how to complete these 3 steps in this article above.
