This can include:

  1. Government issued photo ID
    • Current Canadian passport
    • Current Canadian Driving Licence
    • Current Canadian residence permit
  2. Proof of address To verify your address we need to see a bank statement, Notice of Assessment (NOA) or utility bill. The document you provide must not be older than 6 months, and the address printed on this must match that on your WorldRemit account. Bills we can accept are:
  • Telephone bill
