Education verification for work pass applications
in Singapore

As seen in The Business Times and Deloitte

MOM now requires that all foreign nationals looking to work in Singapore must obtain a valid work visa.
Part of this application involves authenticating the education and/or employment of the candidate - proving the qualifications and skillset exist to successfully carry out the role in question in place of a local.

If you’re planning to work or renew your work pass in Singapore, Veremark can help you ensure that the background verification for your work pass application is compliant with the government’s guidelines.

Azian Rahmat,
HR Manager, Consultancy

I recently had a particularly time-sensitive request related to an EP renewal. I was impressed by how swiftly the Veremark team handled the request, providing the verification report within just six days.

Devangana Yadav,
Head of Operations, Investment Firm

Veremark: Transparency and simplicity, completion of check in a timely manner. I also wrote in to MOM to provide feedback on Veremark's good work. I strongly believe that service providers must be up to the mark, or they will bring Singapore's business environment into disrepute simply by association of accreditation by MOM.

What background check do I need?

To determine whether you need reference checks, identity checks, bankruptcy checks, civil background checks, credit checks for employment or any of the other background checks we offer, chat to our team of dedicated account managers.

Why should employers check the background of potential employees?

Many industries have compliance-related employment check requirements. And even if your industry doesn’t, remember that your staff have access to assets and data that must be protected.

Carrying out comprehensive background checking helps mitigate risk and ensures a safer hiring decision.

Again, this depends on the type of checks you need. Simple identity checks can be carried out in as little as a few hours but a worldwide criminal background check for instance might take several weeks. A simple pre-employment check package takes around a week. Our account managers are specialists and can provide detailed information into which checks you need and how long they will take.

What does a background check show?

Background checks not only provide useful insights into a candidate’s work history, skills and education, but they can also offer richer detail into someone’s personality and character traits. This gives you a huge advantage when considering who to hire. Background checking also ensures that candidates are legally allowed to carry out certain roles, failed criminal and credit checks could prevent them from working with vulnerable people or in a financial function.

The process of conducting a global sanction can take anywhere from a few days to a couple of weeks. The length of time it takes to get a sanction check depends on the type of job you are applying for, how thorough the employer wants the background check to be, and how quickly you provide required information.

What is a global sanctions check?

Sanctions checks search for links to money-laundering, fraud, and terrorist activity. They scan thousands of enforcement databases and watch lists for information. Requesting a Sanctions check for an employee can help make sure you're in compliance with Anti-Money Laundering regulations.

What is a global watch background check?

The Global Watchlist is a database of a variety of suspicious lists available around the world that companies utilize to regularly check against known or suspected terrorists, money launderers, frauds, ie. PEPs (Politically Exposed Persons).
