Hey, I obviously like the idea behind Revolut. Once I started traveling and working remotely full time, Revolut was obvious choice but unfortunelty inability to identify myself with just national passport is a deal breaker for people outside of EU&UK me included. I was able to get a card while in Europe but can’t verify it. What are the options digital nomads outside of EU&UK have in regards with identification? When will we be able to verify ourselves?
Thank you for contacting us.
Just to clarify, Revolut follows UK Regulations, which requires ID verification. Unfortunately, there is a 750£ transaction limit after which our users have to verify their identity with us.
However, we’ll take your feedback into serious consideration.
Hey @AndreasK, thanks for your response.
I understand and agree that ID verification is completely reasonsalbe and needed after £750 threshold. My problem is that your service requires EU residency to verify in contrast to other services that allow you to verify by your national ID i.e. transferwise. And I don’t understand that constraint while literally most other financial/banking services don’t have that particular residency facotr in verification process.
