Summary 


First AML's short identity verification form enables us to collect your identity documents, such as a current passport or driver licence and address information, and verify your information in a fast and secure way.

Your ID and address is verified against the relevant government databases to ensure the document and information is valid and current.

We also require a video or photo of yourself which is collected through the form. This is so our AI-based technology can compare your facial biometrics to your identity document, to ensure that no one is trying to submit your details as their own. 




Alternative option


If you are unable to complete the online verification form you can send First AML certified ID documents. Please visit here for certification guidelines.
