FBI Background Check Apostille Korea

The first step in obtaining an FBI Background check for Korea is to contact an FBI Approved Channeler.  An FBI Approved Channeler helps expedite the FBI Background Check process by directly sending your fingerprints to the FBI so you’ll get your results back sooner and within a few days.  In order for the background check to qualify for an Apostille, you need to request a document signed by the FBI Section Chief (Kimberly J. Del Greco).  This document will be printed on a special blue-tinted paper and will be mailed to your home or office.  You will need to send us this signed document by mail so we can obtain the Apostille from the US Department of State in Washington, DC.

Here is an example of this letter:

If you plan to also drive in Korea, you’ll need an Apostille on your California Driver License.  If you are already in South Korea, go ahead and mail-in your original California Driver License so we can copy certify it.  We have a full-time notary on staff who will make a color copy of your driver license and attach the “California Copy Certification by Document Custodian”.  This ensures that the California Secretary of State will attach the Apostille to the document and prevent any delays.

Our fee includes UPS Air next business morning delivery to most locations in the United States.  If you live in a rural area, there could be an additional one day delay.  We do provide international shipping to Korea.  Additional shipping rates apply so please Contact Us for the total cost.

South Korea Apostille – California

The information in this article is for documents originating from the State of California to be used in the country of South Korea. South Korea is a member of the Apostille convention and documents sent to this country will receive an Apostille from the Secretary of State in California.

These documents include: Birth Certificates, Death Certificates, Marriage Certificates, Divorce Decree, Power of Attorney, Affidavits, Copy of Driver License Apostille, and more. For a list of documents we can obtain an Apostille for, visit this link: http://www.apostille.la/documents-for-apostille-service/

If your documents are from the State of California Vital Record’s office (Birth, Death, Marriage), your documents are required to be a certified original (blue/pink in color) and signed by the County Clerk Registrar Recorder’s office. If your document is signed by the health department (Ex: Medical Doctor), you’ll need to have your document authenticated (Exemplification) by the County clerk before the document is eligible for a California Apostille.  Before mailing in your documents, please call us for verification.

We have years of experience notarizing, authenticating, and certifying documents for South Korea. If you live in Los Angeles county, we offer complimentary notary service including picking-up and dropping-off your documents (If required). Documents which require a notary are generally power of attorney, affidavit, school transcripts, copy certification of a passport or driver license, and a copy certification of a school diploma.

Obtaining a California Apostille can be complicated and time consuming. The Secretary of State has only two offices in California making it difficult for most people to drive to their office. The usual wait time is 3 hours at the Los Angeles Secretary of State’s office.

We provide fast same-day apostille service in California. Documents received by 10:30am Monday through Friday will be eligible for same-day Apostille service. Once processed, your important documents will be shipped by FedEx overnight delivery to your location at no additional charge. We also provide international shipping to South Korea.
