How it works

Enter your ID details into our powerful online portal for instant verification. Our interface with the Document Verification Service (DVS) allows identifying information to be compared against the record of the agency that issued the document.

Employers will feel confident about your work readiness when you show that your records have been verified.

Examples of identity documents that can be verified electronically via DVS include:

  • driver’s license
  • Medicare card
  • passport
  • visa/right to work
  • birth certificate.

Once you have entered your identity details as they appear on each document, the fit2work platform submits queries to the relevant agencies that issued the documents via the DVS Hub. The DVS will determine if the document details are still valid, not expired or cancelled, and will return an indicator to our online portal within seconds.

You receive a result within seconds of entering your details.
