What is the Certsy Right to Work Check?

The Certsy Right to Work Check (RTW) is an instant online visa and passport check to ensure Sidekicks have working rights in Australia and it is a requirement to complete work with Sidekicker.


What is required to complete the check?

The check requires a passport or medicare card for Australian citizens, and a visa and passport for non-Australian citizens. 


How do I complete the Certsy Right to Work check?

Step 1: Go to the website e.sidekicker.com/Certsy

Step 2: Complete the form with your name, email, date of birth and postcode, and submit the details.

Step 3: 

  • If you are an Australian citizen, provide details of your citizenship or visa. You can use Medicare card, Passport or Australian citizen certificate.
  • If you are not an Australian citizen, provide details of your passport or visa.

Step 4:

If you are an Australian citizen, screenshot the results of the check and upload it through the certificate section, under the ‘Certsy Right to Work Check’ certificate on your profile. 

For Australian citizens, visa expiry date = 01/01/2030.

If you are not an Australian citizen, screenshot the results of the check and upload it through the certificate section,  under the ‘Certsy Right to Work Check’ certificate on your profile.

What if the Certsy Right to Work check results come back as Inconclusive?

If the results of your check come back as inconclusive, check if your visa is valid using VEVO. The VEVO check requires your visa evidence number, date of birth, passport number and country of the passport.

The VEVO website looks like this:

If the VEVO check comes back as verified, please upload the VEVO verification document as a certificate under 'Certsy Right to Work Check' on your profile with the expiry date listed on the document.

If your results come back as inconclusive, this means that you do not have valid working rights in Australia and we will not be able to employ you on our platform.

What if I am still having trouble verifying my working rights?

If you are still having trouble verifying your working rights or disagree with the results of your check, please email us at support@sideicker.com.au and we will look into this for you.
