In order to get your fingerprints taken for a Canadian criminal record check in South Korea, you must get it done at your local district police station. It is important to note that not every police station is a local district police station. Local district police stations are larger than regular police stations, and provide more services.

The Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency (서울지방경찰청) has compiled a list of local district police stations for the city. Simply view the list and find the location which is nearest to you.

Getting fingerprints taken in South Korea for a Canadian criminal record check is a relatively simple and straightforward process. After determining which local district police station is closest to you, you will have to visit in-person. Once inside the station, you will need to find the Foreign Affairs Department (보안과 외사계) where they will take your fingerprints and stamp them to make it official. The whole process is rather quick, so you don’t need to wait around for long.

The Canadian Embassy in Korea does not perform criminal record checks. They are also unable to provide any updates about the status of a criminal record check.
