Authentication process for EU Clients

Hello Deriv Community

Below is the authentication process for clients from the EU.

Countries in Europe that are part of the EU
Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Republic of Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain and Sweden.

To fully authenticate the accounts, we’ll need:

  1. Proof of Identity ( A proof of identity that must show your photo, name, DOB and country of citizenship/nationality. And the document must not be expired) + Selfie

  2. Proof of Address ( It must also include client’s full name, the same address as in the client’s account and the issue date must be within the last 6 months.

  3. Markets in Financial Instruments Reporting (MIFIR),
    MiFID II

  4. Tax Identification Number (TIN) EU website: Tax Identification Number.

  5. Financial Assessment (FA)
    There are two “forms” that clients who open an account must fill out as a prerequisite to that account opening. It gathers information from the salary of a client to work experience, source of wealth, level of education, time of experience in trading, etc.

Once ALL these related documents and information are obtained and successfully verified, then the account will be Authenticated.

Hope this is informative and helps ease your authentication process.
