You won't be required to provide hard copies of your documents, so it's not a problem if you don't have physical copies with you. You'll only need to provide digital copies, such as photos, scans, PDFs, or other digital formats. Some ways to get proof of residency documents while abroad:

  • A family member at home could send you photos or scans of your paper documents.
  • Your school or employer could send you documents via email.
  • Your landlord could provide scans of property rental documents.

Note that you are not required to provide every item on the list of proof of residency documents. It's only necessary to provide at least one.
