  • What is non-documentary verification?

    Non-documentary verification enables verifying customer identities without requesting their IDs. This verification type is based on customer data verification through public data sources. The customer enters some of their data, such as their identification number, and the verification provider cross-checks it via secure government databases.

  • What is an example of non-documentary verification?

    An example of non-documentary verification is Sumsub’s Non-Doc identity and address verification solutions, which allows companies to verify users in 4.5 seconds on average by cross-checking user identity data against governmental databases or other reliable sources - no need to upload photos or documents.

  • Documentary vs non-documentary verification: what is the difference?

    Documentary verification is based on validating customer identity documents such as IDs, passports, driving licenses, and more. A non-documentary method of verifying identity doesn’t require users to upload their documents and instead uses their identification numbers to cross–check through public databases.

    Non-Doc Verification is currently available for users from Argentina, Bangladesh, Brazil, Ghana, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa, the Netherlands, and the UK, with Hong Kong and Denmark coming soon. Sumsub covers approximately 90% of the population on average in these countries.
