Google requires advertisers to complete identity verification as part of the advertiser verification program.

For identity verification, advertisers may be required to submit one of the acceptable documents listed below based on the location their organization is registered in, or resident in if they are an individual.

Note: The documents required are based on your account type “organization” or “Individual”. You can check your “Account type” in your Google Ads payments profile via the “Settings” page for “Billing & Payments”. If your “Account type” is “Individual”, but you need to verify as an organization or vice versa, contact us before starting the verification process. These documents are required for the successful completion of the verification process.

Personal data and documents will not be shared with any third party, as per the Google data protection policy.

Acceptable documents by location

Organizations are required to submit one of the following registration documents for advertiser identity verification. Acceptable documents include:

  • Certificate of incorporation or registration
  • Extract from commercial register

Individuals and authorized representatives must submit a government-issued photo ID as part of the verification process proving their residency in Palestine. Acceptable documents include:
