What documents are required for Facebook Business Verification?

If your business is not listed when you attempt to verify it, Facebook may ask you to upload official documents to prove that your business has been registered. These documents must show the legal name of your business and your business's official postal address or phone number. You may also be asked to provide proof of website domain ownership if you choose to receive a verification code at your email address.

After you've uploaded the documents, Facebook team will review them. This may take several days. You can check the current status of your verification by going to your Security Centre.
The table below shows what documents you can submit for business verification processing for your country of residence.
