International Education and Employment Verifications

Crimcheck can verify education and employment information if the school or employer is located in one of the countries listed below. Since every country has a different process of how they hold their education and employment records, please allow extra time for investigation. In order to expedite an international verification it is important that the applicant submits any documentation they have, such as a copy of the diploma or certification.  Additional international database searches (Global Watch Lists) are available. They are considered Global Sanctions Checks and can be found here.
