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 need to submit the second set to the Korean consulate closest to you, after
the first part of your visa is processed in Korea.
**If you are from Canada and do not want to send your original degree to Korea, you will need to obtain 3 sets of transcripts.
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 criminal check notarised and then brought to the Korean consulate closest to you to have them 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 have your check done by the local, city or state Police. An FBI check takes far too long, so this is not a good option. You must get a name check (name clearance), or a fingerprint check done. The criminal check must be approved by the Apostille office in the same state that the background check was issued in, or it will not be accepted by Korean immigration. Please make sure you call the Apostille office before you order the check.
4. Your resume
5. A photocopy of your passport - the first page.
*Make sure that your passport has at least 6 months validity on it.
6. The signed contract
Please initial each page as well (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).
