Q) For my immigration purpose I need to submit to the Canadian authority a Korean Police Clearance Certificate of a Korean Criminal Check, whatever it is called, which has “lapsed records” which means all the criminal records database search. I contacted the Korean embassy in Toronto and they only issue normal Police Record which is not accepted by the Canadian Immigration and told me I had to get it from the local police station in Korea. However, it is not feasible for me to visit Korea just in order to get this document. I’m wondering whether your law firm deals with this type of case or not ? If so I would like to know the details about the process.
A) Yes, we’ve been dealing with this kind of case quite many times. The most recent client was in need of this document to submit to the Canadian immigration in connection with his visa application. We could get the original copy of the Korean Criminal/Investigation Records Check Reply(범죄수사경력회보서) which included the lapsed records as well.
We need your passport copy and a power of attorney, which form will be provided from my office. It will take about a few days or a week for you to receive this document from us.
Please note that, as written on the criminal record certificate, the lapsed records is only for a personal verification only.
