Apostilled FBI Check

US Citizens must now provide an FBI level check in order to obtain a visa to teach in Korea. Since Korean Immigration office allows FBI check issued by Channeler, you will have FBI result in 2 weeks. 


List of FBI approved channelers info: http://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/criminal-history-summary-checks/list-of-fbi-approved-channelers


You will also need to request a letter signed by the Criminal Justice Information Services (Biometric Services Division) signed by the Section Chief. Korean Immigration office doesn’t accept emailed copy of FBI results. So you must obtain FBI results from Channeler as printed FBI results in blue paper with seal and section chif 's signature on it.

Some people receive FBI results by email and use a regular paper to print it out and use for Apostile authentication. But this is not acceptable so please make sure that you must order it to be received by printed authenticated documents on a security paper(Blue paper,Seal, signature) .    


After you receive your FBI check, you have to get it apostilled.

You can get apostille from Office of the Secretary of state

(Apostille: http://www.apostilleinfo.com/usa.htm ) but lots of Office of the Secretary of state don’t do apostille certificate to document issued by Federal government so please check it out with them and if they don’t do , please get it apostille from The Department of State, Authentications Office in Washington DC.( See below information)
