Whether you’re moving, starting a new job, getting-married, or continuing your education in South Korea, you will be asked to obtain an apostille on your documents. We can process documents originating from the U.S. and for South Korea.
From our experience authenticating thousands of documents for South Korea, the most common documents we process are:
- FBI Background Checks
- Diplomas and Transcripts
- Driver’s License
We will discuss each document separately below and will provide you the simple steps you will need to take before you can mail in your documents to our office for processing. Please note that we have nine offices throughout the United States and each office can process specific documents. For example, an FBI background check is processed through our Washington DC Apostille office. A color copy of a California Driver’s license can be processed through our Los Angeles apostille office.
FBI Apostille for South Korea – The Government of South Korea will request for you to obtain an apostille on your FBI background check. If you have not already obtained your FBI background check, the first step is to contact an approved FBI Channeler to assist you in obtaining your FBI background check. If you have received your FBI background check in a digital format (PDF copy) from the FBI Channeler or FBI, go ahead and email it to us with the completed order form and payment (see below). If you have received your FBI background by regular mail (Hard copy), go ahead and mail it to our Washington DC office with our order forms (see below). We can process a digital PDF copy or a hard copy. It’s your choice. Please contact us for the most up to date processing time.

Diplomas and Transcripts Apostille for South Korea – If you attended a school (High School, College, University, Trade School, etc..) in the United States and plan to work or continue your education in South Korea, the requesting country will ask that your records be authenticated (signed and notarized) by the School’s Registrar. Once notarized, it can then be mailed in to our office with our order forms for processing.
We can apostille diplomas and transcripts signed and notarized in all 50 states and the District of Columbia (Washington DC). All of our order forms can be downloaded here: Apostille Order Forms
Driver’s License Apostille for South Korea – A driver’s license is signed and notarized in the state it originates from. For example, if your driver’s license is from California, then the color copy will need to be signed and notarized in California. If you are already in South Korea, you can ask a friend or family member to help. In some states, a notary can copy certify a color copy of a driver’s license. All notarized documents received at our office must be original. We do not accept online notarizations.
Obtaining an apostille for South Korea can be complicated. Don’t leave this process to untrained employees or non-professionals who do not fully understand the apostille process and the unique requirements of certain countries. Your paperwork could be rejected costing you time and money. Don’t let this happen to you!
