Background Screening Coverage Areas – Africa

Though background checks are notoriously difficult in Africa, GIS is still able to perform some type of overseas background screening for each country. We go out of our way to ensure that our searches are as accurate as possible, going so far as to require diploma or degree copies for education verifications due to a prevalence of diploma fraud and the complex political situation. If a traditional check is not possible, GIS will recommend our multi-faceted global criminal database. We also have processes in place to address situations where a country no longer exists, as the current government of the region may or may not recognize the records of its predecessor. The situation may be intricate, but GIS' international background screening department has the solutions you need.

Features of our global background screening solutions include user-friendly reporting, web-based order & retrieval and privacy & consent forms in the language of the country being searched. What's more, GIS clients get the full backing of our global research network, multi-lingual verifications team and international compliance experts.
