Intermediate and full verification processing time for most applications is within 2-3 working days, depending on levels of public interest.
Basic Plus verification is instant and takes only 10-30 seconds to complete.
However, applications can take longer if they are incomplete or if they are submitted during periods of significant public interest in cryptocurrencies. We apologize for any prolonged delays and want to assure you that we are working tirelessly to verify your account.
Be sure to monitor your email for official correspondence from the Bitfinex compliance team requesting any additional documentation that may be required for verification.
Our compliance department works rapidly to verify all incoming new client documentation, case-by-case.
Keep in mind that you do not need to be verified to start trading on Bitfinex. Verification is essential for users wishing to deposit/withdraw fiat currencies and some stable and specific coins as well as unlock multiple features on Bitfinex Pulse; however, you are free to deposit, trade and withdraw cryptocurrencies, and can do so immediately upon signing up.
