Types of Address Verification

Verifications- permanent and temporary addresses.
Permanent Address- is an individual's legal address where he or she is a registered resident along with
the name and it appears in Government documents such as ration cards, voter id cards, passports and

Temporary Address- is any person's home address, where he or she is staying with a friend or relative.
It can either be a rented apartment or a paying guest. Or it can also be a post office box where he/she
can receive any letter.
