The requirements to get your Coviu Phone number

To receive your very own Coviu phone number, identification verification and specific documentation is required for approval - just like getting a phone number from a Mobile Service Provider or Internet Service Provider.

You will be asked to submit a digital copy of an official document to start the process. At least one document must be a Commercial Register. Below are two examples of the best documents to submit:

  1. A business register extract (e.g. an Australian Business Register) [Required]:
    Business Registry-1
  2. A company letterhead with your organisation's logo and information included:
    Company Letterhead 1-1

Note:

  • Please ensure that the submitted document is clear and complete, making sure that all of the text is readable and no edges of the document are cropped out (like the one shown below).
