The fastest way to verify Skrill account is to use the mobile app. You need to pass 3 stages: identity verification, address verification, and account ownership (selfie).
However, there is one thing you should know. To pass verification in Skril mobile app you need to deposit at least $10. After that a window to scan your documents will appear. Let’s review it step by step:

After these steps, you will see a message that all documents are being reviewed (screenshot 4).
Alternatively, you can use geolocation in your smartphone to confirm your address.
However, address verification should be passed by using your geolocation or by uploading the appropriate documents to your Skrill account.
Go to Settings page, choose Account verification, and click Verify now (screenshot 1).
Click on Take a webcam shot (screenshot 2).
Choose a document type identifying your person: passport, ID card, driving license etc, and take a picture of it using webcam.
Make a selfie with a sheet of paper in your hands. There you must write the word “Skrill” and the date of sending the documents for the account verification.
The result of a successful documents verification will be sent by e-mail.
This verification method is more lengthy compared to verification from a mobile app or webcam and takes 2-4 business days.
Nevertheless, it is the most convenient, because it allows you to go through all three stages of verification immediately:
In the “Settings” tab, select the “Verify” item, click – “Verify Now” (screenshot 1) and select the third method – “Upload images”.
To verify your identity, you need to upload a photo (scan) of a document confirming your full name and date of birth, and indicate in advance which document you will upload: a passport, ID card, driver’s license (screenshot 3 and 4).
To confirm the account ownership you need to upload your photo with a sheet of paper in your hands. There you must write the word “Skrill” and the date of sending the documents for the account verification (screenshot 8).
To verify the address you also need to first select the document from the proposed list and upload it to your Skrill account.
Information about which documents have already been verified, and which – at the stage of verification – will be displayed in the “Summary” window (screenshot 7).
To complete a full verification in Skrill (which includes verification of identity and addresses), you must prepare in advance the following colored copies of the documents.
A color copy of the internal or foreign passport (first and second pages), driving license, ID-card – one document of your choice. Black and white copies are not accepted.
