What are the verification level requirements?

In order to be eligible to register a Kraken account and use our services, you must 18 years or older and reside in a supported area.

To get started trading, we only ask a few things for the Starter verification level.

The Intermediate and Pro levels are like opening a bank account and require supporting documents.

For a detailed comparison of what you can do with each verification level, see our support article "What can I do with each verification level?"
