I already obtained one apostille for my diploma and found out that my future employer needs 2 copies (for board of labor and immigration). I'm in Korea for two weeks before going to Europe and was hoping to get some of this stuff settled before I leave.
I'm wondering if I can get another diploma apostilled without actually being physically present for a notary? Basically, can my Dad get the document notarized and then send it to the state for an apostille?
Secondly, the FBI does not apostille FBI Background Checks. Is the next step only to send it to the US Department of State and request that it be apostilled? Did anyone have to get that notarized?
Is it possible to get my diploma apostilled through them as well?
I'm just trying to see if I can get both documents apostilled at once, at the same place. I realize a lot of my questions should be directed at someone in the state department. However, they won't accept phone calls because they'd probably get 100000 a day. Also, it's Monday afternoon...nothing is open in the states yet.
Anyway, I just want to hear how other people have handled this...getting my background check completed was a mess and a long story. This whole process in and of itself has become quite tedious and expensive with all the shipping costs back and forth. Regardless, thanks in advance for any information or suggestions.
