We need to verify your identity when you send 8,000 HKD or more from an account in Hong Kong or HKD balance in your Wise account.
You’ll need to be verified if:
your transfer is 8,000 HKD or more
your transfers add up to 8,000 HKD over time
you’re opening a business account
We’ll ask for a document to prove your identity. We accept driving licences, national ID cards or passports (photo page only). We need to be able to see the whole document, and read all the details on it. That includes any visible security features — like the code at the bottom of a passport photo page.
Your first transfer above 8,000 HKD should be made via bank transfer. You can use any payment method for transfers after that.
