Identity check

Validata carries out the ID check on a national as well as an international level.

Identity check suits every screening profile

An Identity check, or ID check, is the most frequently performed check within Validata’s screening profiles. The identity of a (potential) employee is verified by examining a passport, ID card, or residence permit. By doing this,  as an organization, you are sure that the (potential) employee is who they claim to be. Validata checks the identity on both a national and an international level.

Online ID check quickly taken care of by Validata

The (potential) employee is asked to upload a scan of the passport, ID card, or residence permit in Validata’s secure online system. This is also possible using a mobile phone or tablet device. Via a special mobile-friendly function in our application, you can easily take a photo of the document which is saved directly in your personal account.

Identity verification through our partner Mitek

The scan or photo  of ID is sent to data supplier Mitek, the industry leader in digital identification on an international level. They check the authenticity and validity of the document.. In addition, Mitek inspects whether a passport or ID card appears in the VIS register (Verification Identification System). This includes all documents previously reported as stolen or missing.
