Upload a photo of your ID

Like all banks, we are under obligation to document that we know who our customers are. Because of this, we request that you upload a photo of a valid ID, such as your passport or driver’s licence, as proof of identity. You can do this easily and securely via this website.

Please make sure that the photo of your passport, driver’s licence or other valid ID is clear and in focus - see the instruction below: "Examples of proof of identity pictures". If you do not have a passport or a driver’s licence, you can find a list of other valid forms of ID below.

Please note! A selfie/photo of yourself is not a form of valid ID.

Q&A regarding the uploading of documentation

  • Why do you need to provide proof of identity
    The Danish Anti-money Laundering Act requires us as a bank to have a solid knowledge of all our customers. This is to help prevent fraudulent use of the financial system. 

    Also, by knowing our customers, we are able to take action if a customer behaves in an unusual way or if we see that unusual transactions are being made via the customer's account. We are under an obligation to notify the authorities if we suspect that a transaction may be illegal.
