IDVT, or Identification Document Validation Technology, is a new requirement in the UK for verifying the right to work of prospective employees. This technology, used through a Digital Identity service provider (IDSP), allows employers to verify that potential employees have the necessary documentation to legally work in the UK. This applies to all businesses, regardless of size. This process can be used for any British and Irish citizen who holds a valid passport, including Irish passport cards
The changes to the Right to Work checks were introduced due to the difficulties posed by the pandemic, which made face-to-face checks difficult. The government initially introduced the option to verify an employee's right to work through video calls, also known as adjusted checks. However, concerns about the increased potential for fraudulent applications led to the introduction of the IDVT. Starting from 30 September 2022, employers will need to conduct checks in one of three ways: a manual, in-person check, a check using IDVT via a third-party provider, or a Home Office online right to work check.
