Lifting All Restrictions and Limitations (Identification)

Identified users are the users who transmitted to us all their passport details, including the date and place of birth, registration address, and issuer name.

Which of the identification methods we provide suits you best depends on your current location, your citizenship, and presence of other identified Yandex.Money Wallets in your possession.

Send details via the internet

You can do so in three following cases:

  1. You handed us some other application in the past. For instance, an application for linking a phone number or restoring access to your Wallet. If that suits you, send us a light application.
  2. You completed identification in the past for another Yandex.Money Wallet. In this case, you can copy these details for your other Wallet, which will make them both identified.

All these three methods are free.
