How to Provide Your Identification

If you want to send more than 9 000 SEK within a 12-month period, we will need to verify your identity.

There are two ways to verify your identity:

  • Online

    Electronic verification usually can be done immediately. In some cases, we may need more information and it could take longer. If you choose this method, you will be asked to enter information such as your national ID number, or banking ID, or other information needed to verify your identity online.

    Please make sure the information in your Western Union profile is correct. The name in your profile must match the name on your ID. If electronic verification fails twice, you will not be able to send money online until you have been verified by us.
  • ID letter

    If you choose the process by mail, please make sure the address in your profile is correct. We’ll send you a letter with further instructions. The process may take several days. Learn more
