I am applying an abroad company and they offer me to become their employee, without send me any offer letter or other letter, only by conversation in email.
Then, they ask whether they can proceed to apply working visa for me. I feel this is unusual, so I ask for job agreement letter prior to proceed applying working visa to evade any disadvantageous things in future.
It seems that their HR now finally wants to make the job agreement letter for me. However, the HR says that she need my passport number for appointment letter (which I assume it is a different letter than the job offer letter) and asks me for my passport number. Since passport number is very private information, can anyone advise what exactly passport number in appointment letter for?
I have got the Appointment Letter from HRD. In this letter, it consists the sections similar with job agreement with sections, for example, salary, duties, working hours, etc, etc, and she put the field of passport number under Employee's Acknowledgement which this section is right after my user's (manager) name.
So I assume this is safe to write down my passport number there.
