ID2 verification is used to prove the identity of a person for a company or corporate body, often the Director. This is required to carry out a land or property transaction by the company or corporate body. If you need ID verification for an individual, you need an ID1, instead.

We carry out your ID2 verification online via video call for efficiency, convenience and to keep your costs down. Video verification requires an ID5, which we verify at the same time, for free.
