 In Canada, CRC (Criminal Record Check) is handled by Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP). This will determine if an individual has a criminal record, meaning if he/she has been charged or convicted of a crime. There are two ways to check your criminal record. however, As of April 01, 2015, the Korean Consulate will notarize ONLY the FINGERPRINTS C.R.C. and it does NOT need to be notarized by the Notary Public before notarization by the Korean Consulate.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The applicant's name on C.R.C. must EXACTLY match the name on his/her passport. If not, submit a copy of a SECONDARY ID (i.e. Driver's License or Birth Certificate) which displays the EXACT name on his/her C.R.C.

*** IN CASE NAME ON C.R.C. DOES NOT MATCH NAME ON PASSPORT

  1. IF THE C.R.C. CONTAINS MIDDLE NAME BUT THE PASSPORT DOESN’T, SUBMISSION OF A SECONDARY ID (GOVERNMENT ISSUED PHOTO ID) WITH THE FULL NAME IS MANDATORY
  2. IF THE C.R.C. DOES NOT CONTAIN MIDDLE NAME BUT THE PASSPORT DOES, MUST REQUEST A NEW C.R.C. WITH THE FULL NAME.
