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.
Note that when you create an account on Bitfinex by linking your email address, your account becomes automatically verified on Basic level. This means that you are immediately free to deposit and withdraw most listed currencies on Bitfinex, make exchange and margin trades, provide margin funding, and have access to the Bitfinex OTC market.
Further verification is required for users wishing to deposit/withdraw fiat currencies (e.g. USD), for selected utility and stablecoins, (e.g. LEO, Tether USDt tokens), and/or to access advanced trading options, as well as unlock multiple features on Bitfinex Pulse.
