Sending Money

Norwegian and foreign passports (not emergency passports)

• Norwegian & European driving licenses

the Immigration Regulations appendix 4)

• Norwegian immigration passport (blue passport)

The identification document must be valid. The documentation cannot be expired on date

When you provide the documentation physically to one of our agents, the customer must provide original documentation.

If your document was not accepted, it is possible that one of the below scenarios happened:

1. The document cannot be read due to low-quality scan/photo

2. An incorrect document was uploaded, e.g. proof of address instead of proof of identity

3. Incomplete document upload, e.g. only the front side of the ID card was uploaded but the reverse side is missing

4. The document has expired

5. The name, address and/or date of birth do not match with the information you entered in your Dahabshiil profile

As a Financially Regulated Company we are under an obligation to follow what are known as the "Know Your Customer" regulations, which require that we must understand who our customers are and understand who they are sending to and why.

We will ask all customers to provide some photo ID.

Sometimes we might also need to see proof of your income or Source of Funds. This is particularly likely if you are sending large amounts or have been a customer for a long time.

Occasionally we also might ask for information or documents relating to your beneficiary.

If you don't have any of the documents that we ask for please contact us and we can review your account.
