How long will it take the Google Adsense Verification PIN Mailer to arrive Nigeria?

I waited over 60 days (more than 2 months) before my PIN was sent to my resident in Lagos, Nigeria. I requested for this PIN sometimes in November 2016 (not sure about the exact date but it’s obviously Mid-November).

Normally, Google Adsense PIN for address verification typically arrives 2 to 4 weeks after requesting but keep in that it differs across many countries. (To find out when you can request a new PIN, sign into your account and check your “Account information” page.)

After waiting impatiently for my Google AdSense verification PIN Mailer, I had to re-apply for my PIN to be sent, the case of reapplying / re-requesting for my Adsense Verification PIN happened over and over. I remember requesting it about three times since the first request took place November last year.

Note: You’ll have four months from the date your first PIN is generated to enter it in your account. If you haven’t entered it after four months, Google will stop showing ads on your web pages.

However, Google just made sure I got my PIN after the long wait. My PIN was intact and unsealed but looks rusty and a little dirty (see pictures below). Those were less of a concern because the 6 digits verification PIN was received.

    • Some Important things that you should know:

      Once you have reached the account balance verification threshold then wait for a week to receive the AdSense PIN.
      Adsense generally delivers in two weeks but it can be take the more weeks depend on your location.
      Wait for four month and if you still not receive the AdSense PIN then you should request for new AdSense PIN.
      Every PINS are unique. If you have requested for new pin and suddenly got the first PIN then you can also enter the first PIN. It will work to verify your address.
