* If your application requires manual review, processing can take a few days

If we experience a heavy influx of new users, however, processing times for verification could slow down considerably. If you experience a delay, it doesn't necessarily mean there is something wrong with your application. We'll be sure to contact you if we need anything further from you, so monitor the email associated with your Kraken account to see if you've received an email from us about verification. For tier 3 verification, it won't help to upload the documents again.

In order to avoid delays in processing your application, it is important that all uploaded documents meet the required criteria. If one or more documents are invalid or do not meet the criteria, we will request you to upload new documents.
