Education verification proof in line with MOM’s requirements

Employers are responsible for ensuring that their candidates’ qualifications are genuine and were awarded by accredited institutions. During the work pass application, they would be required to submit a verification proof which confirms that the qualification is authentic and were awarded by accredited institutions.


Our education verification process is in line with MOM’s requirements. We will seek to obtain the verification that the qualification is genuine and are obtained from an accredited institution. The institution has to be accredited by the relevant government authority or a reputable and well-established organization.
