Your document must show your billing address with your name on it. Alternatively,  if you are living with a relative and you are using their document to show proof of address, then you must have the same last name.

Just like the ID verification, verifying your address also takes two to three business days. It’s a good idea to do them at the same time so you don’t wait for more than necessary.

While waiting for your ID proof verification, you should get your essential work from home equipment ready.

A common mistake most beginners make is not considering the toll of long working hours in front of a computer on your body.

It’s totally okay if you don’t have the budget for this yet. But a laptop stand is a cheap but very helpful item for your work-from-home setup. Once properly adjusted, a laptop stand helps prevent pain in your wrists, neck, and back.

We personally use this portable laptop stand (pictured) that we got from Lazada. It’s easy to set up anywhere and can be used while working in a coffee shop or even abroad.

You can still make the most out of your time while waiting. Start updating your resume, learn new skills, and brush up on your English. Also, don’t forget that preparing your WFH equipment can help you avoid pesky health issues, such as back pain and carpal tunnel.

These issues happen a lot for beginners (even me) after a year or so of working long hours on a computer. Once, you have enough saved you should get an ergonomic chair like the Sihoo M57.

After switching to that chair, my back pain from long working hours has disappeared.  Though, that chair is a bit pricey for newbies. If you don’t have the budget for it yet, a back cushion works as excellently for temporary use.
