Find Immigration Records: How To Find Them And The Reasons Why You Need To
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

There are several reasons why you might need to find immigration records for yourself or for those that you are considering hiring. We all remember the scandals in the recent past when immigrants were hired by high ranking officials in domestic positions.

To protect yourself or to prove you are who you say that you are, it is important to have all of the right documentation. However, if that is not possible for one reason or another, then it may be time to try to find immigration records on your own.

If you are looking to find immigration records for yourself or your family member because you have lost your own copy, it might be possible to call the Department of Naturalization and request a copy of whatever is on file with them.

Depending on your status in the country, you might need to provide additional forms of identification and may need to sign some documents as well. If you do not have the documentation that you need however, there might be some problems that you will have to figure out to get the papers that you are requesting.

You will need to find immigration records for yourself for many reasons. Foreign born people will need this documents when they apply for a driver’s license, a bank account or for other purposes. For instance, it might not be possible to rent an apartment or house without the right paperwork on hand. You cannot open a new bank account if you cannot find immigration records because of the National Security Act, the bank can explain exactly what you need in more detail.

You will also need to find immigration records for your employees, especially if you suspect that they are not legally in the country and eligible to work for you. It is vital that you are not hiring people who can cause your company and business any kind of legal problems, especially in areas with high concentrations of illegal immigration.

You can find immigration records by running a background check on every employee- the policy that you have in place should be fair and equal. If there is any problems, the report will be flagged and can be investigated further if necessary. Again, this will happen with all employees, not only those that are born in other countries.

To use a background check to find immigration records, you simply have to fill out the form with the person’s name, last known address and other information and then wait for the search site to generate a report. If the last known address does not match what is on file for the name, for instance, it will be flagged as well.

Finally, every employee should know that you are going to find immigration records and that you are not doing so to punish anyone- that it is the company’s policy to run this check on everyone, regardless of who they are, what language they speak or what they look like.
