What to do before extending

The teacher needs to apply for the Criminal Background Check Record in advance and have the document ready. The time requied in receiving a Criminal Background Check Record varies from country to country. The Criminal Record notarized by either the Korean Consulate (Canadian citizens) or the Apostille (all other citizens) needs to have obtained within the past 90 days. Therefore, too early application will not work.
