Fully Automated VEVO Visa Checks

Identity and Visa Checks are mandatory under new regulations

Cloud Service VEVO Visa Verification

IDV Pacific provides clients with automated Department of Home Affairs Australian Visa (VEVO) checks that require NO MANUAL DATA INPUT

Just upload an image of a relevant foreign passport to our server and receive a full VEVO check.

Enables anyone including employers, educational institutions, labour-hire agencies, and recruitment firms to:

  • Request single or multiple (batch file) visa checks
  • Average response time measured in seconds per visa checked
  • Up to 2,500 checks per day when using batch mode
  • Receive results AS DATA through our API (requires client-side application changes)

Advanced Passport Validation

If required we can also utilise our:

  • Border control standard document validation technology to validate the passport, and
  • Face recognition to confirm that a live image of the presenter matches the passport portrait

Why do employers need to comply with new regulations?


DHA (Department of Home Affairs) requires ‘employers to take reasonable steps to make sure they are not employing, referring or contracting illegal workers’

Enhanced Detection

Single Touch Payroll now gives the Australian Tax Office (ATO) the ability to share payroll data with DHA for compliance audits

DHA now cross-match Tax File Numbers with near real-time payroll data to identify workers without appropriate visa requirements

Large Fines

Australian employers face prosecution and fines if they employ illegal workers:

• A$3,780 to A$63,000 and/or five years imprisonment for individuals
• A$18,900 to A$315,000 and/or five years imprisonment for bodies corporate and their representatives

IDV identity validation enables compliance

❖ Confirm employee or student identity and work status to comply with the Department of Home Affairs (DHA) and new Labour Hire Agency Licensing Laws

❖ ‘Right-to-Work’ checks offer limited value unless the underlying identity has been validated

❖ If employers do not validate employee identity/visa status, they risk financial penalties and damage to corporate reputation and public image

❖ Save time and money by checking potential employee identity and work status before checking references, work history, qualifications, credit history and even criminal record

❖ There is little point checking these details unless applicants’ identity and work status are verified
