Why do I need to send additional documents?
Once you have started the verification process to open your N26 Bank Account and you receive an email from us requesting additional information to continue with your sign-up, please read the below information to help you with your application.
N26 is a regulated bank, and in certain scenarios we may need additional pieces of information from our customers to continue with your sign-up. This is a standard request that aligns with legal and regulatory requirements. We will need you to provide us with specific documents in-order to open a N26 Bank Account.
We appreciate that this information is very personal to you and the information you send us will remain strictly confidential. And will only be used to fulfil our legal obligations.

How do I send you this information?
Please note that by default our system is designed to protect email delivery through TLS encryption or higher connection. This means that if your email server accepts an inbound TLS encryption or higher connection, the emails you exchange with us are encrypted over the network (end-to-end). If your email server does not support TLS encryption or higher connection, the email you send us may not be encrypted and thus we advise you to use the physical postal delivery option which will be a safer way to exchange information, to the following address:
N26 GmbH, Sign-up document, Rungestraße 22, 10179 Berlin.
If you choose email delivery, please see the instructions provided in the email that you have received from us in this regard.
If you decide to reply by email, please also send scanned copies, photographs and/or screenshots, with detailed descriptions of each document. Everything must be clear and readable and not should not be more than 15MB total.
You should hear back from us within the next 3 business days.
Important: Sending false and/or inaccurate information is a criminal offence. Doing so means we won’t be able to accept your application.
