What is Nova, and why do you need to fill out KYC information? 

Nova is a third party that Circle uses for applicants to complete the Know Your Customer, KYC. Your information will be stored securely. You'll need to pass KYC verification to open a Circle Account. It's essential to provide as much information as possible. Our team may reach out if we require additional documentation. 

How long will it take for my application to be reviewed? 

We try to review all applications as soon as possible. The time it takes to review your application may be increased due to overwhelming interest or if we require additional documentation. 

If you have any additional questions, please reach out to the Customer Care Team at
