Transfers from the United Kingdom (GBP)

If you want to make a GBP transfer from the United Kingdom we will need to verify your details as part of the transfer process. All customers wishing to send GBP will be required to complete Biometric Verification. You will be guided through the two step process and just need to follow the prompts.  

What you will need

Technical Requirements

Biometric Verification will require you to have access to either;

  • A computer with a working web cam (on our web app) or
  • A mobile phone with a working camera to complete the process on our Android or iOS apps.

Identity Document

Biometric Verification will require you to have a current passport (any nationality) or a current United Kingdom Drivers License.


Proof of Address

We will attempt to verify your address in the background using the details you supply when completing your profile (this is not a credit check but simply a check against electronic databases through a trusted partner). If we are unable to verify your address automatically we may also require a valid Proof of address document which should meet the requirements below:

  • Be a bank/credit card statement (issued by your bank) or utility bill 
  • Be less than six months old and show the date of issue
  • Be addressed to, or show the name of, the OrbitRemit account holder

There is no need to complete verification prior to creating a transfer. The first time you create a transfer the verification requirements will be built into the transfer creation process.
