What is visa verification?

Visa verification is the process of verifying a candidate’s visa to determine whether the candidate has a visa that permits their right to work at your business. This is an important component of a comprehensive employment screening process and ensures you’re meeting your compliance obligations.


Why conduct visa verification?

There are many benefits of conducting visa verification:

  • Confirm your candidate’s right to work at your business to minimise your liability and risk.
  • Ensure you are in compliance with the employment and immigration regulations to be protected from potential legal ramifications.
  • Screening your prospective candidates will save you time and money in the long run by understanding from the outset whether the candidate has a right to work with your business.
  • Assist and protect the candidate by identifying any legal barriers to hiring. As the candidate may not be aware of their visa conditions themselves, providing them with this information could help protect the candidate from legal ramifications.
