This will open a new window. Now you have two options. You can

1) Use the call now option. Add a publicly listed phone number and select your country. Once you have hit the ‘Call Me Now’ button you will receive a telephone call on the number you have entered on the form - so you will need to be near the phone. The automated phone call will give you code that you’ll need to enter into Facebook.

2) Use the ‘Verify this page with documents’. You will need to upload you a document (eg. Phone Bill) that includes your phone number. This is slower process than the ‘Call Me Now’ option but still works.
