Korean Immigration had previously announced that as of January of 2011, all American English teachers will be required to have an FBI background check done in order to teach in Korea. It was unclear as to what English teachers from Canada were to obtain, but it is now clear that they will need an RCMP check. Luckily this check takes a lot less time to obtain than the FBI check, which can take up to 3 months.

For any inquiries about the new rule change, please contact Travel and Teach.
