Reply to the ticket and wait.

Hi @johndvera13

You need to create a ticket via Support in the control panel or use this form:
https://www.digitalocean.com/company/contact/

It can take up to 24 hours to complete the verification process once you've submitted the right documents.

  • they have already replied to the ticket and i have send the right documents about 7 hours ago.. its been 17 hours since i got locked.

      If you complied 7 hours ago, then you have to wait up to 17 hours more, since that's your time period - not when the account got locked, since that process is automatically.

ok got it.. i thought that the after that i got locked thats the time that i have to wait 24 hours. thanks

    No, since it might take multiple days for you to comply with the verification requirements.
    The time starts, when they have something to work with - not before that.

    • its been24 hours now since they have replied to my ticket and i have submitted my picture but still my acount is locked.

        Well, we cannot help you here, since we're just other users. And please remember the timezones - so sometimes it takes a little longer.

        When you say, you submitted a picture - I hope you mean a photo of a governmental identification like a driver license or password.
        If your photo doesn't comply with what they're requesting, then it might take a little extra to help you.

thanks. hope my account gets unlocked later.
