We just streamlined a couple of things and made it easier for you to have checks done:

  • Download the forms: Agristays Order Form, Consent Form, Disclosure Form (if required).
  • Complete the forms and mail them with supporting documentation to us.
  • Wait for your invoice and pay as soon as possible.
  • We will submit your application to our agents and e-mail or courier/post the results as soon as we received it.

We assist with verification on all future employees, volunteers, and employers. This is a service we not only render to farmers and their future employees, but to ANYONE in need of checks to be done – farmers, small businesses, corporate HR departments, volunteers, landlords.

What is the next step?

  • Decide on the items you want to verify, either for yourself as employer or volunteer.
  • Employees are welcome to have a verification done at their own cost (we recommend at least a criminal verification) to enhance your chances of employment.  However, we do realise that it is not always affordable for unemployed persons to do so. Also, this is not a requirement.  Ultimately, this is a cost that should be carried by your employer and if you decided to do this at your own cost it will only be to enhance your chances to be employed. EMPLOYEES SHOULD NEVER BE REQUIRED TO PAY FOR ANY VERIFICATION REQUIRED BY EMPLOYERS – IF YOU ARE AN EMPLOYEE NEVER PAY FOR ANY VERIFICATION IF REQUIRED BY AN EMPLOYER.
  • Download and complete the following documentation : Agristays Order Form, Consent Form, Disclosure Form (if required).
  • These forms must be sent back to us via e-mail (sorry, we do not have fax facilities).
  • You will receive an invoice from us (WE ARE NOT REGISTERED FOR VAT AS IT IS NOT A CURRENT REQUIREMENT FOR US) via e-mail. The invoice will contain our banking details. You will also receive a payment request via e-mail from PayFast.co.za offering you alternative methods of payment including credit card.
  • Once your payment has cleared and we received your completed and signed forms and supporting documentation we will forward this to our agents for action.
  • If your request includes a Criminal Verification the candidate will be contacted and an appointment will be set up at one of the agents listed below.  PLEASE NOTE THAT EMPLOYERS, VOLUNTEERS AND EMPLOYEES WILL BE HELD FINANCIALLY ACCOUNTABLE FOR NO-SHOWS AND NO REFUNDS WILL BE MADE.  NEW APPOINTMENTS WILL RESULT IN A NEW APPLICATION AND PAYMENT. THESE ARE THE RULES AS DETERMINED BY MIE AND NO EXCUSES WILL BE CONSIDERED.
