Criminal Record Checks

The following is provided for general information purposes only. IPR encourages applicants to contact law enforcement and/or consular officials directly for official information and advice.

Vulnerable Sector Query
By applying to teach English in South Korea you are applying to work with children. When requesting your criminal history, please notify the processing law enforcement agency of your intention to work with children and your need for additional clearance vis-a-vie a vulnerable sector query or equivalent. This additional search ensures that applicants for registration do not have expunged, sealed or spent convictions involving sex crimes and/or children.


Please note: In dealing with numerous law enforcement agencies in a variety of countries, processing rules and regulations invariably vary. Should you have a question or an issue please contact IPR and we will help where we can.


Canadians should make inquiries at their designated Comissionaires office for the criminal record check. The criminal record check MUST include a vulnerable sector query.

Your criminal record check will be notarized by IPR's legal staff and with the Korean Consulate and will be included in the fees for notarizing as described on the required documents page


Americans should make inquiries at their local or state police detachment for the criminal record check. The criminal record check should include a vulnerable sector query but should the police detachment that you are dealing with not be able to provide this service then a full check will suffice.
