Below was the message that i received from google adsense

You’ll need to verify your identity to receive payments from Google AdSense.
To complete this verification, you'll need to provide an image of your current government-issued photo ID. The name on your payments profile must match the name on your ID.
The process may take a few days.
Supported document types for your country:
  • Passport
  • Driver's License
  • National Identity Card
Tips on submitting your documents:
  • Capture the entire document, the photo should be readable and in focus.
  • Keep your image free of reflections and glare.
  • Incomplete or obstructed documents or dark or blurry photos won't be accepted.
  • To prevent abuse, we allow a limited number of verification attempts.
  • Uploading documents or photos other than your ID may result in account suspension.
To verify your identity:
  • Sign in to settings
  • Click the Verify now button on the alert.
Your data safety and privacy are very important to us. Google stores your information on secure servers and never shares it, except in limited circumstances as specified in our Privacy Policy.""

I have tried doing as instructed by the above message, but my international passport which i uploaded isn't showing successful. More so, I keep seeing a RED ALERT on my google adsense account asking me to take action because "My payments are currently on hold. Action is required to release payment."

I added my Nigerian debit card but it was not accepted. Please I need help and assistance to resolve these issues so that my payment via google adsense can be processed and resolved please.

Thank you for responding

Posting here won't do anything, and it's not advisable to share personally identifiable information on public forum such as this. Follow the instructions given. Has your passport been rejected by Google, and if so, on what grounds?
