Document Notarization Guide

What is document notarization? 

It refers to the public recognition of the credibility of documents as they come and go between countries. Notarized documents will be effective as official documents in both countries A and B.

If you wish to use documents issued in country A in country B, you should generally obtain 1) certification from the government agency in country A and 2) certification from the ambassador (consul) of country B in country A.

As the number of Apostille members increases, the above general document notarization process is used only for document exchange with non-apostille members.

The notarization process of documents and the department in charge of notarization may differ by country. Make sure to check the exact process with the information appropriate to your nationality

What is Apostille?

In order to facilitate the international use of official documents among the members of the Convention, instead of abolishing the consular verification process of foreign missions, the official document issuing country certifies the reliability of the documents. Therefore, in the case of documents certified by the issuing country between the member countries, the official document can be recognized in the other country (the country of use).

Each country has a different government department in charge of issuing apostille. Please contact your local embassy to prepare for the detailed Apostille issuing agency and the issuance process.

What is a notarized translation?

If the document is in a language that is not recognized by Korea, you will need to translate it and get a notarization for the translation. 

For students applying for Korean language schools in Korea, translation into "Korean" or "English" is most appropriate, and generally the two tasks are entrusted together to an administrator who is qualified for translation and notarization.
