The An Garda Siochana estimates about three weeks processing time. Once you’ve received it, you need to have your certificate legally authorized. These are the steps for authorization:

1. Have your document notarized by a local notary public.

2. Send off your notarized form to the Department of Foreign Affairs to be apostilled. Attach a letter with the following information:

  • Name
  • Return address
  • Telephone number

The documents will be used in the Republic of Korea. Include cash, check (made out to “Department of Foreign Affairs”),or postal order for €20. Mail to:

Consular Section Department of Foreign Affairs
80 St. Stephen’s Green Dublin 2

OR bring your notarized form in person along with €20 to:

Consular SectionDepartment of Foreign Affairs
Hainault House 69 – 71 St. Stephen’s Green Dublin 2

And that ‘s the Ireland criminal background check!
