Getting an Apostille

You might wonder, what is an apostille?
It is basically a certificate, page, seal or stamp attached to your document to verify that it is legitimate for international use.
However, it is only issued to the citizens of the countries that are members of the Hague Apostille Convention. (Canada is not a member of Hague Convention.)
You would need to get them on your Criminal Background Check, and University Diploma.

Where do I get them?

Each country has designated government agencies for getting an apostille.

Australia citizens, check the website of the Smart traveller.

US citizens,
for your diploma, check with your own state’s secretary of state office. (State apostille)
for your FBI background check, check with the US Department of State. (Federal apostille)

Ireland citizens, check the website of Department of Foreign Affairs.

New Zealand citizens, check the website of Department of Internal Affairs.

UK citizens, check the website of Gov.uk.

South Africa citizens, check the website of Department of International Relations & Cooperation (DIRCO).

Since Canada is not a member of the Hague convention, Canada citizens, you would need to check with your local Korean consulate for notarization.
