Once you have done this you can save your details and use your login to check the status of your visa. Depending on where you live in the world, a visa can take from two weeks to 30 days to arrive to you.

DBS Check

The Disclosure and Barring service replaced the Criminal Records Bureau and allows for employers to make informed decisions about who they could be hiring. Initially, it protects their rights, as well the rights of the people they supply or work with.
The DBS check works by checking past criminal records and deciding whether they should be placed or removed from the barred list. You can only request a DBS check for potential employees if you are a registered employer, and if the individual is older than 16. To find out more about the DBS eligibility, visit the Home Office government website.
