Hi,

I have a question about "proof of residence" document requirement.

I have already received my credit card to mail from my bank, will this document be sufficient to prove my address or do I have to wait for my monthly statement?

My bank statements are paperless, so What about the eStatements that I download and printed out ?
Would that be sufficient as proof ?
