New Zealand Embassy Seoul, South Korea

Korea Police Certificate

Effective 1 March 2009, applicants requiring a Korean Police Certificate for visa purposes need to complete the process themselves. The New Zealand Embassy in Korea will no longer handle the Korean Police Certificate applications on behalf of Korean nationals residing in the Republic of (South) Korea.

For all Korean and non-Korean nationals residing in the Republic of (South) Korea:

- All applicants requiring a Korean Police Certificate should request a Criminal Investigation Record Certificate (Bumjoi-gyungryuck Soosa-gyungryuck Johoi-hoibo-seo 범죄경력 •수사경력 조회 회보서 in Korean) from the nearest local police station in Korea. Korean citizens must show their national identity cards. Non-Korean nationals must show their Korean alien registration cards or passports.

- No fee is required for a Criminal Investigation Record Certificate that is issued in Korean only. Applicants must attach a (notarized) official English translation prior to submitting any visa application. Please note that translation by the applicant, a family member or a person with an interest in the outcome of the application is not acceptable.

For all Korean and non-Korean nationals residing outside the Republic of (South) Korea:

- All applicants requiring a Korean Police Certificate should approach the nearest Korean Embassy or Consulate Office to obtain the application forms and further information on application for a Criminal Investigation Record Certificate (Bumjoi-gyungryuck Soosa-gyungryuck Johoi-hoibo-seo 범죄경력 •수사경력 조회 회보서 in Korean).
