Korean Consulate Certification

Canadians that want to teach English in Korea must obtain an E2-Visa. However, as Canada did not sign the Apostille Convention, Canadians cannot get their documents apostilled. In place of an apostille, Canadian applicants must get their documents certified by the Korean Consulate in their area. The Korean Consulate will act as the “apostille”, i.e. they will certify your documents for use in Korea only.

In order to obtain an E2-Visa and teach English in Korea, you need to get two documents certified by the Korean Consulate.

1) Your university degree
2) Your criminal record check

Note: If you are still in school or have not yet received your degree, you can first submit the official Letter of Expected Graduation or Letter of Intent to Graduate (the actual names may vary from school to school). The actual date that you will be receiving the degree needs to be clearly stated in the letter. You can then submit the Korean Consulate certified degree later.

Steps for getting your University degree certified

1) Get a copy of your Bachelor’s degree notarized by a notary public or lawyer in the same province as the university.
Note: Multiple people have told us that the Korean Consulate in Montreal and Toronto may not require you to notarize your CRC before they certify them. Please contact your nearest Korean Consulate for more specific details.
2) Mail or bring the notarized copy (and additional documents) to the Korean Consulate nearest to you in order for it to be certified.

Steps for getting your Criminal Record Check certified

1) Get a copy of your CRC notarized by a local notary public or lawyer.
2) Mail or bring your notarized copy (and additional documents) to the Korean Consulate nearest to you in order for it to be certified.
