I have been asked to submit a verification proof, what are the requirements for it?

Employers are responsible for ensuring that their candidates’ qualifications are genuine and were awarded by accredited institutions.

Verification proof requirements

If you’re asked for a verification proof, it must meet all these requirements:

  • Confirms that the qualifications are genuine and were awarded by accredited institutions.
  • Is from a background screening company.
  • For the below qualifications from China, you can also get the proof from Center for Student Services and Development (CSSD), formerly known as China Higher Education Student Information (CHSI):  
    • Diploma: Online Verification Report of Higher Education Qualification Certificate
    • Degree and above: Online Verification Report of Higher Education Degree Certificate

Educational certificates certified by a notary public are not accepted as a form of verification proof.
