I'm interested to hear from people who have renewed within the past month -- is this what you experienced? Did you have to provide the national-level check and an apostilled degree?I'm Canadian, and our background checks are national-level by default, but we haven't signed the apostille treaty. That means that I need to send my original degree back to my parents, have them photocopy it, have a notary sign the photocopy, have the notarized copy and a copy of my university transcript sent to the nearest Korean consulate in Canada to be stamped, and get the whole thing sent back to me in Korea. If I *do* have to do all of this now, despite what was said before, I need to get this stuff sent out right away.So. Can anyone with current personal experience chime in? Also, do any of my fellow Canadians know of an easier, but still legitimate, way to fulfill the apostille requirement?
@insanghan - How were you able to get your FBI check back in the three week time you were back home? I thought it took a couple of months.
