Do you need to apostille your U.S. driver’s license for a driver’s license in South Korea?
How to apostille your U.S. Driver’s License for South Korea…
To exchange your U.S. driver’s license for a driver’s license in South Korea, you will need to follow the process outlined by the Korean government. Here are the general steps:
Verify eligibility: Check if you are eligible to exchange your U.S. driver’s license for a Korean driver’s license. In general, this process is available for foreign residents who have lived in Korea for more than 90 days with a valid visa.
Gather necessary documents: Collect the required documents, which may include your passport, alien registration card, a Korean translation of your California driver’s license, a medical certificate, and two passport-sized photos.
Take a written and practical driving test: You will need to take a written and practical driving test. The test can be taken in English or Korean, and you can get a guidebook in English to prepare for the test.
Visit the local Driver’s License Examination Office: Visit the local Driver’s License Examination Office and submit the necessary documents, take the tests, and pay the fees.
Receive your Korean driver’s license: Once you pass the tests and complete the process, you will receive your Korean driver’s license.
Before we can apostille your U.S. driver’s license for South Korea, you will need to make a color copy and meet with a local notary public in the state the license is issued from. For example, if you have a California driver’s license, you will need to meet with a local notary public in California. Once notarized, you can then mail it to our office with the California apostille order forms. Please do not mail in the original license.
It’s worth noting that the exact process and requirements may vary depending on the region in Korea where you live. You can find more detailed information on the website of the Korean Embassy or Consulate in your area or by contacting your local Driver’s License Examination Office in Korea.
Obtaining an apostille on your driver’s license can be complicated and time-consuming. Don’t leave this process to untrained employees or non-professionals who do not fully understand the Apostille process and the unique requirements of certain countries. Your paperwork could be rejected costing you time and money. Don’t let this happen to you!
