International Background Checks


International Background Checks: If an employer, for example in the USA, is considering hiring someone who has recently lived, worked, or studied in a different country (i.e. Germany, Austria or Switzerland), the employer may want to run an international background check in addition to its regular employment background check in the US.

With an international background check, the employer can get international credit / financial details and records, red flags and negative findings, as well as education and employment verification. Depending on the information employers need, costs vary by service provider depending on the country (i.e. Germany, Austria or Switzerland) and the scope of the background check.

Each country requires varying documentation to perform the background check, such as full name, date of birth, written consent from the candidate, power of attorney and a copy of a government-issued ID, such as a passport, so it’s important for employers to work with a service provider that can communicate what’s needed in details and quickly. In Germany, Austria and Switzerland, Privatimus is one of the leading background check and screening provider with 25+ years business experience.
