My new school needs to register me again as a teacher with the Office of Education.

However, this time I've been told they need an Apostilled Degree Copy but I only had one and that was for transferring my Visa at immigration.

Pretty sure last year, my school only took a photocopy to the Office of Education.

So, any other teachers in the same process as me?

Now, I will need to send my other notarised degree copy back home for the Apostille and wait for a process that could take 1 month.

Don't know why 2 Government bodies can't just share information? Korea illogical.

Yeah they can't share information.

If you need documents apostille in a hurry, you can use an apostille service www.apostillepros.com but you have to pay them. They can do it the same day they receive your documents. 1 day for apostille and 2-3 shipping days for the documents to get to South Korea by FedEx international with tracking

or

like you said do it yourself and wait a month time. You have options, it's just a matter of what you want to do. Paperwork is part of getting a job, just have to do it so you can get paid.

This year with degrees, they want a copy of the degree apostille, not the original.

K-immi needs the appostilled copy of the degree.

The education office does NOT and they wouldn't know one if it bit them in the butt.

Your co-teacher / wonjang is talking through their hat.

They might want, but they dont need.

It sounds like somebody just wants to be as important as immigration and redundantly demand the same things as them. They only need a copy for their records. You were already cleared by immigration.

That said, if you dont give them what they want, they can get rid of you. They sponsored your visa and gave you a job, they can take it away. No need to give a reason if you are still probationary. Under an E-2, you are not protected by labor law until you have been employed for at least six months.

My friend sent her degree to her Penn college, they wouldn't even notarize it at the registrar office. Weird how some states work.

The only things we need apostilled are a COPY of our diploma and our CBC right? How much does that cost total?

So your saying that i can get an apostille in 2-3 days? What does a copy of a degree mean? It's just a scanned copy of my degree right?

For Visa, you need a copy of your degree apostille. Korean immigration no longer want the original degree apostille for South Korea.
