Why does WorldRemit need to verify me?

As a financially regulated company we are required by law to verify all of our customers.

The type of verification we will need can be different depending on the amount that you are sending, and which country you are sending from. This is because each country you can send from will have different laws that WorldRemit need to abide by.

Usually, we will only be required to check your name, address and date of birth. However, in some circumstances, we may also require further information in order to comply with our regulatory obligations. This can include the purpose of your transfer or source of funds for example.

We will contact you if we require anything from you, so please ensure you check your emails regularly after you’ve created your transfer.
