Authenticating Your Transcript / Degree / Diploma

Korean organisations sometimes require that foreign documents be authenticated before they will accept them. Having a document authenticated is a two step process.

  • Step One – Document Authentication by  Global Affairs Canada
    Document authentications are processed by the Authentication and Service of Documents Section (JLAC) of  Global Affairs Canada. For information on authenticating Canadian documents, visit the Authentication of Documents website.
  • Step Two – Document Authentication for Use in Korea
    Once your document has been authenticated by the Authentication and Service of Documents Section (JLAC) of Global Affairs Canada, you should have your document further authenticated by a Korean diplomatic mission in Canada, if required.
