2. Two copies of officially processed transcripts
(transcripts need to be in a sealed envelope, with the stamp or seal of the university covering the seal to show that it has not been opened. There must also be a signature and a date beside the seal). You will not
need to send your transcripts to Korea for the first part of the visa processing but you will need to submit them to the Korean consulate closest to you, after
the first part of your visa is processed in Korea.
3. A criminal check - must be less than 6 months old
*If you are from Canada and want to teach abroad, you will need to have your RCMP fingerprint criminal check notarised and then brought to the Korean consulate closest to you to have it checked and approved. The cost for this is $4.40. If you are mailing your documents, you must send them through Canada Post (Xpresspost) or they will not be accepted.
**If you are from the U.S, and want to teach abroad, you will need to obtain an FBI check. The FBI check must then be approved by the Apostille office in the same state or it will not be accepted by Korean immigration.
4. Your resume
5. A photocopy of your passport - the first page.
*Make sure that you have signed your passport and that it has at least 6 months validity on it.
6. The signed contract
(You will receive this after you have been interviewed and accepted by a school).
7. 4 passport photos, sized 3.5 x 4.5 cm (2 photos will be sent to Korea and the other 2 will be needed for the second part of your visa processing in your country).
