For security and regulatory reasons, WeTravel must verify the identity of all users that accept and transfer funds through WeTravel, and verify if they are eligible to transact payments through WeTravel. To simplify this process, we have partnered with Persona for personal and business verification.

To start your account verification, please go to your Profile:



Then click on Trust & Verification section to open your personalized verification page.

If you are a trip organizer collecting funds from travelers, please click on the first section “Trip organizer”:

After reviewing our verification requirements and choosing the one applicable to your case, please click the green “Start Verification” button. You will now be forwarded to a secure page of our verification partner Persona:



After clicking Continue, you will be prompted to enter your mobile phone number and verify the security code. Please ensure to only trigger one code and wait for it to arrive. Triggering multiple codes can lead to glitches or unsuccessful delivery:

In the next step, you will choose whether the account is a personal or company account:

Company Account

After selecting the country of your business, you will be asked to enter the rest of the business details, including your business name, registration number, business address, website, company size, and estimated monthly sales (expected sales through WeTravel).

As you progress further in the verification flow, please provide us with your social media accounts for a faster approval process.

You will then be asked to upload the documents.

If your company is US-based: Please provide an IRS-issued EIN letter or a certificate of good standing.

If your company is not US-based: Please provide proof of registration, VAT confirmation, and/or an extract from the Chamber of Commerce.



After submitting your registration documents and proof of address, you will be prompted to add information and IDs for all beneficial owners of your company.

Afterwards, you will be asked to verify your business owner's identity by submitting a driver's license, passport, or national ID. As a final step in the verification process, you will be prompted to take a quick selfie, and you are all set!

You can monitor the status of your verification process under the Trust & Verification section on your account. Additionally, we will send you a confirmation email informing you about the decision! Please note that verification can take up to 3 business days to be completed and sometimes even longer if we wait for your documents.

You will be prompted to provide your business registration documents if registered as a legal entity.

After uploading your proof of address, you will be asked to verify your identity by submitting a driver's license, passport, or national ID. As a final step in the verification process, you will be prompted to take a quick selfie, and you are all set!

If you are a supplier

After you've received an invitation to join our platform from another WeTravel user, accept the invite directly from that email.

To verify your account as a supplier, please kindly follow these guidelines.

If you are a traveler

You do not need to verify your account as a traveler - you are all set!

If you are a team member

As a team member of an organizer on WeTravel, you do not have to verify your account. Only the primary account needs to be verified.
