Dubai Postcard Verification Issues for Google My Business


Businesses trying to verify their Google My Business Listing in Dubai / UAE typically experience issues with the delivery of verification postcard because businesses mainly use PO Boxes instead of physical address for mail.

Google My Business did test a PO Box section for UAE / Dubai businesses, however this has been removed due to unreliable authentication of business and misuse.

Note: I have successfully used postcard verification for hundreds of businesses within Dubai’s CBD – postcards that go missing tend to be outside of CBD.

 

Main Points About Postcard Verification

1. If this is the only option presented on verification – you must use this.
2. Contact business support for help with manual verification after 14 days from request.
3. Add images of business signage to your listings photos – makes manual verification quicker.
