In case Amazon requires documents to unblock your account, always read the instructions for these documents properly. Never upload another document. Remember that these documents must be in a language that Amazon knows. That is, in the language in which Amazon has language mutations. The easiest for him is English on the American Amazon. For the European Amazon, English, German, French or Spanish are suitable.
