The Honest Truth About Recruiting in Korea

Apostille with Diploma Now Required for F-visa Instructors

with 2 comments

Heard from a recruiter friend at one of the big-name schools that the Ministry of Education is now requiring all F-visa candidates to submit an Apostille verifying their original diplomas when they register with the Ministry of Education.  A Korean staff member just called someone at the MOE and confirmed this.  It’s a hurdle for the F-visa guys but will hopefully weed out the crazies.

It’s a measure they should have introduced a long time ago.  In reality, a guy with an F-4 or F-2 can just submit a really authentic-looking phony diploma and be registered as I don’t think the MOE employs any measures to check for fake diplomas.  Of course, they can also submit transcripts to verify the diploma but even these are readily forged.
