In this page you will find helpful tips how to submit a high quality document photo, film a document video and what are the registration session time limits.

Guide 1 of 3

Taking your document photo

During the registration process we will require you to submit your identity document photo. This photo is a part of the evidence package, which proves your e-signature is a qualified electronic signature (QES).

Therefore, it is important to ensure the document photo in a high quality where all its details can be easily read.



Ensure there are no reflective glares on the document. Position it where natural or ambient light illuminates evenly, like placing it on a desk near a window.


Do not capture images with glares or reflections as they obscure text and details.


Avoid low-light conditions that can result in grainy or unclear photos.


If using a strong artificial light, hold the document vertically with your fingers to minimize shadows and ensure clarity.

Ensure all document details are visible and legible in the photo. Make sure nothing obscures the text or important information.


Cover any part of the document with your fingers or other objects.


Do not tilt the document; keep it squarely facing the camera for clarity.



Make certain all corners of the document are visible in the frame. This ensures completeness and prevents any vital information from being cut off.


Do not zoom out too far, as it can make it harder to identify document details.



Do not zoom in too closely on the document, as this can result in cropped corners, potentially losing valuable context or data.




Ensure the photo is sharp and clear, with all text and details crisply captured. This enhances readability and prevents any ambiguity in the document's content.


Do not submit blurry or out-of-focus images, as they can be difficult to read and may lead to the registration case rejection.

Filming your document

During the registration process, we may ask you to film your document while following a given pattern.

How the filming process works

Depending on whether you are filming a card or a passport, we may ask you to capture a single side or both sides of your document. For each side, it's essential to follow the same pattern consistently.

Why we ask you to film it

We require assurance that your document is genuine by verifying its security features. Filming the document provides us with the opportunity to conduct this verification remotely, eliminating the need for an in-person meeting.

Following the pattern


Move the phone to trace an imaginary pattern over your document. In the provided example, the individual follows the pattern of the letter "M".


Do not remain stationary or obscure the document. Ensure the filmed video clearly demonstrates the required movement pattern.


Do not film a blurry video. Position your camera at the optimal distance to maintain clear focus on the document.

Security details

When you move your phone's camera under appropriate lighting conditions, we can identify the genuine security features present in the document.



Keep the phone’s flashlight turned on to ensure visibility of the security details.



Do not disable the flashlight or rely solely on ambient light, which may obscure the security details.

Understanding registration phases

The ZealiD user account creation process is divided into three distinct phases:

Phase 1
Submit registration details

The session begins when a user clicks "Let's start" and agrees to the registration terms and conditions. During this phase, users are required to submit contact information, selfie, document photos, and a document video.

Session time limit

2 hours.

Users have 2 hours to submit their details, if failed the process will restart from the beginning.

 Phase 2
Wait for approval

Upon submission of registration details, users must await validation and approval from a ZealiD agent.

Session time limit

4 minutes.

Service Level Agreement (SLA) dictates a maximum processing time of 4 minutes during the service hours.

Phase 3
Sign a user agreement

Once the registration is approved, users receive a request to sign user terms and agreements. Upon signing, a unique user certificate is generated, granting the user the right to sign qualified e-signatures (QES).

Session time limit

7 days.

Users have 7 days to sign the user agreement, if failed the process will restart the registration from the beginning.

Register in one go

We advise completing the registration session in a single attempt. Ensure you have your ID nearby and are in a private, secure environment before starting. Preparation beforehand can streamline the process.

Enable app notifications

To stay updated on your registration progress without constantly checking the app, consider turning on the notifications. This ensures you are promptly notified when your case is processed and a user agreement is ready to be signed.

Ensure stable internet connectivity

During the first phase of registration, it's critical to have a stable internet connectivity as your data is transferred to our servers. This ensures a smooth and uninterrupted registration process.
