Who needs to verify their ID?
To help promote the safety of our growing community, our goal is to have every guest and host complete Verified ID to help indicate that their online and offline IDs match the name on their Airbnb profile.
Currently, we ask all guests making last-minute reservations, as well as a random sampling of community members, to verify their IDs. In these situations, you will need to complete your Verified ID before the reservation request can be sent—the request is put on hold for up to 12 hours.
Once completed, you receive the Verified ID badge on your profile and the reservation request is sent. If you do not complete Verified ID within the time frame, the reservation request is canceled and your payment authorization is voided in full.
Additionally, hosts can set reservation requirements that require their guests to have a Verified ID. Any host who requests guests to verify their IDs must also get verified.
