How long does Airbnb ID verification take:
Your Airbnb ID verification can take not much longer than 24 hours. However, you’ll find that when you’ll place it for approval, it will get approval far sooner than 24 hours in most cases.
If you see after waiting much longer than 24 hours your Airbnb ID is not getting approved, you need to understand that there is something wrong with the ID that you’ve provided which is why they have not accepted or verified it. Check the verification status from your Airbnb profile tab and then you can contact that customer helpline service.
