I've been a teacher in Korea for 9 months and was looking to renew my contract and was told that in order to renew, I have to get a new NATIONAL criminal background check and an Apostille stamp on my original diploma. I'm a US citizen
Apparently Korea passed a new law that requires all ESL teachers to have a NATIONAL background check and apostille on my diploma (i had gotten apostille on some stuff previously but not my diploma).
Has anyone else heard about this? Does anyone know how to go about doing that? Someone said I have to go to Guam for the apostille or just have someone back home do it (like my family back home doesn't have anything better to do...)
