Verify Revolut Card- Does the ID matter?

(Lukas) #1

So I recently opened up a Revolut bank account. My first bank account since I left my home country Germany and used my new Maltese address.

The next step to top-up a higher amount is the verification by ID. I don’t have a Maltese ID yet. I could just use my German one, or my drivers license, however I don’t want them to think I am still connected to Germany to avoid any kind of reporting. I am not doing anything illegal, but AFAIK bank are forced to report new accounts to the country of residence of whoever opens that account(?).

So my question: Does it matter which ID I use? Should I wait until I get my Maltese one(didn’t even apply yet :persevere: ).
