Visa Checks for Companies
If you're a candidate looking to run a vevo check for yourself, please start a police check and choose the Right-To-Work option.
What are VEVO Checks for Business?
While an NCC police check covers an employee's criminal history, a Visa Entitlement Verification Online (VEVO) check protects you against employing people who are not legally entitled to work in Australia.
A VEVO check validates the working entitlements of non-Australian citizens, foreign nationals or people with limited working Visas.
What fines could I face by employing illegal workers?
Penalties are enforced by the Australian Department of Home Affairs and include up to $63,000 and/or five years’ imprisonment per illegal worker and up to $315,000 for bodies corporates.
How do I ensure my employees meet all legal requirements?
A VEVO report includes the Visa provisions for all non-Australian citizens, along with any restrictions. A VEVO report includes:
- Which Visa is held and its expiry date.
- The person's "must not arrive after" date.
- The person's period of stay and conditions.
Note: While a VEVO check validates VISA compliance, every citizen and non-citizen should undertake a "right to work" check. Please contact us to learn more.
Do I need to check all of my employees?
A VEVO report can put your mind at ease if you've concerns around an existing employee. For new employees, everyone should be checked unless they can validate they are:
- An Australian or New Zealand citizen.
- An Australian permanent resident.
