What documents are required for activating a virtual number?


You do not need to provide any documents to activate most number types. However, there are countries that require users to provide documents confirming their identity by law.

  • To activate a virtual number in countries that require ID verification, you need to provide a scanned copy of your ID and a proof of your residence address.
  • Sometimes it is also required to provide a confirmation of residency or justification of business activities the purchased number will be used for.
  • The numbers are activated within 24 hours of the purchase and submission of the required documents. Until then, your number will remain inactive.
