What Documents Does a Company Need to Verify a Customer’s Identification?
- Utility bills with a physical mailing address. Since my friend is living in a dorm, he was asked to get an official statement from the Housing Office in the school for proof of residency.
- Passport and I-20.
- Proof of residency of the home country. In my friend’s case, he was asked to get an official letter from Taiwan, stating in English that he actually lives in Taiwan regardless he has the Taiwanese passport.
- Proof of the student status. He was asked to get an official letter from the school, stating that he is actually a student registered in the school regardless he has the I-20 and a student ID with him.
