    Hi, I was wondering if you have any information about the FBI’s new submission method? It’s now possible to submit the request for and pay for a background check online, then send in printed confirmation along with the fingerprint card. Results take about 1 week rather than 3-4 months.

    I’ve been in contact with their question line and apparently, as long as your opt to have the results delivered by mail, it is identical to using the old, slower method. And, it can be apostilled.

    But, that still doesn’t guarantee that Korean immigration will accept the new document (unfortunately no official sample is available – I asked). Have any Korvia teachers successfully used the new, faster online submission method and been issued an E2 visa? This sounds like a game changer!

    Hi Korvia,
    To get the record check and apostille, do I submit both Accurate Biometrics and Monument Visa application when i send it to you? Or do I submit them seperately?
    Thank you.

    In the instructions, it says Monument Visa will “deliver the result to Seoul (Korea).” Do they deliver to places other than Seoul? Will I be unable to use the service since I currently live outside of the Seoul area?

    The end of the post says “They will deliver the result to Seoul (Korea)” Does that mean that mean that only people who live in Seoul can use the service? Can I still recieve a background check from cities in Korea that are outside of Seoul? (Busan, Daegu, Daejon, etc.)

    I have a similar question as someone above. I can I get the results delivered to another city in South Korea besides Seoul?
