Hello, it’s KICPC.
To apply to a university in Korea, you have to submit some documents.
If you check the university admissions office(website),
you can see the list of the documents that you need to submit.
In the list, some documents need to be apostilled.
For example, there are Certificate of Enrollment, and Transcripts for elementary, middle, and high school.
Those are needed to be apostilled.
Do you know what apostille is?
"Apostille” is a form of authentication issued to documents for use in countries that participate in the Hague Convention of 1961. In general, after the 'Ministry of Foreign Affairs' and 'Embassy Certification', the reliability of the national document is verified, but there is an inconvenience in terms of time and cost. To resolve this inconvenience, without consular legalization through overseas consulates among the member countries, Apostille has appeared, which recognizes documents with Apostille as legalized documents.
(from : http://global.allminwon.com/html/sub02_02.html)
In short, the document is only valid in the country where you issued the document,
and to validate your document in a foreign country, you have to get an apostille on your documents.
The Philippines had to use embassy certification in the past,
but joining the Apostille Convention in May 2019 has made the process simpler.
How to get an apostille?
Apostille is only available in the country where the document is issued.
It’s very important!!
If you didn’t get an apostille before you leave the Philippines,
you have to return to the Philippines and get an apostille in there.
If you’re not in the Philippines now,
you should go back to the Philippines to receive the apostille.
But I think it is a complete waste of time and costs.
