What is an Apostille?
An apostilled document basically means that the document has been examined by a government agency and deemed to be an authentic and legal document for international use. Apostilled documents are legal in all countries that are signatories to the Hague Convention of 1961. This also means that documents that do not have this apostille authentication will not be accepted by the Korean Immigration. An apostille involves the addition of a certificate, either stamped on the document itself or attached to the document.
In order to obtain an E-2 Visa and teach English in Korea, you need to get two documents apostilled
Note: Canadians cannot get their documents apostilled as Canada is not a signatory of the Hague Convention. Canadians however, do have their own process for obtaining an E2-Visa that involves certification by the Korean Consulate/Embassy.
