Seeking a job in a foreign company can be challenging, especially if part of the process involves verifying your qualifications and experience to obtain a work permit or health license. This can be a stringent, time-consuming process that requires you to gather all of the correct resources and documents ahead of time so you can complete your verification application in the stipulated time. However, it doesn’t have to be difficult and following these seven easy steps makes it easy and time-efficient.
Most organisations prefer to verify the credentials of applicants via a third-party verification partner. The leading public authorities and ministries in the UAE, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Qatar, Oman, Kuwait, Singapore, Malaysia, and many more from different regions have onboarded DataFlow as their verification partner to streamline the recruiting process and have included the requirement to verify credentials via DataFlow in their standard and mandatory requirements for granting professional practice licenses.
Here are seven easy steps to complete the verification of your credentials with DataFlow, associated with your application to the ministry/authority:
Choose your relevant industry or country
Visit https://corp.dataflowgroup.com/verification-services/ and select the industry relevant to your profession. You will find the following segments to choose from:
Alternatively, you can also choose the relevant country from the list displayed on the verification service webpage of the DataFlow Groups portal. Select a country to bring up a list of the authorities that have partnered with the DataFlow Group for the Primary Source Verification (PSV) process .
Choose the relevant authority
The next step is to select the relevant authority for which you want to apply for your license. Once selected, you can kickstart your journey with us by applying for your Primary Source Verification. The Authorities listed on DataFlow’s trust the verification process facilitated by DataFlow and consider the PSV report issued valid for your application.
Check the guidelines of the authority for which you are applying
Once you enter the page of the selected authority, you will see a brief introduction to the authority and the verification process, which will help you to understand the process. There are applicant specific materials available to understand the processes, answer your queries and other useful resources. Once you have familiarised yourself with all the available information,, you can then proceed to the next step of the DataFlow verification process.
For specific information on the guidelines and protocols by individual authorities, please visit their website.
Register and enter the application domain
Once you move to the application stage with DataFlow you will be directed to the applicant portal which will ask you to sign in using your username and password.
To obtain your username and password for new users, you will need to complete the registration by clicking ‘New user – Register here’ (figure 1). An email with an activation link will be sent to your email to activate your account so you can log in with your newly created username and password.
It is important to remember that this step is client-specific, and not all clients require a new registration (to verify new documents). For example, the DHA, DOH, and CCP portals do not require a new registration and users can log in with previous credentials (in the case of new document verification) and then initiate a new verification application. However, a number of clients, such as SCFHS, require a new registration.
Once you sign in, you will find specific tabs and sections to input information such as your name, date of birth, email ID, and other required fields.
Follow the protocols and submit your scanned copies and other documents as prompted in the application domain. Submit when you have completed your application and the mandatory, relevant information.
