I’m a host in India. What should I expect from the host verification process with AuthBridge?
We’re always looking for ways to help our community host and travel with more confidence. As part of this, we’ve partnered with AuthBridge, a leading verification provider, to support an updated verification process that’s currently rolling out to hosts in our Airbnb India community.
Completing the host verification process
We’re starting by asking small groups of hosts to complete this process. If you haven’t received an email with instructions from Airbnb yet, it’s coming soon.
Once you’ve received an invite from Airbnb, you’ll start the verification process by providing some basic information, including your name, proof of current address, details of your past addresses, and a copy of your PAN (Permanent Account Number) card or passport. The information you submit must match your Airbnb profile, and you’ll still need to complete the new verification process even if you already have the Verified ID badge.
If you’re a host in India and you have any questions about this process, reach out to the AuthBridge team at 0124-4845504, Mon - Fri (9:00 to 18:00) IST or email@example.com.
After you submit your information
Within 2 weeks, you'll receive an email letting you know the status of your verification. If anything is missing or incomplete, AuthBridge will reach out to you by phone or email. If it's been over 2 weeks since you submitted your information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
