  1. In some countries, the only option for Google to verify your business is via sending you a letter to your new location address. In some others, Google can send the verification code via SMS (text message sent to your mobile phone number). You can always verify later but remember that it might take up to 30 days to receive the letter so the quicker you agree on this verification step, the quicker you get the letter to finally get your new location listed on Google Maps.
