  7. Upload Your Passport: You'll need to provide a clear photo of your passport. Ensure good lighting and clarity for a successful upload.

  8. Verify Details: LinkedIn will extract your details from the passport photo. Double-check the accuracy, and if needed, retake the photo.

  9. NFC Chip Verification: Hold your phone near the NFC chip (usually located under the word "passport" on your passport). Ensure successful reading.

  10. Identity Verification: Follow the on-screen prompts to verify your identity by looking straight into the camera, then to the left, and finally to the right. Your phone will provide feedback.

  11. Submit Your Verification: Once all steps are completed successfully, confirm your submission.
