Ahhh.. well, if you can get as many proof as you can . Which every proof like email, ss from member on forum mention how difficult to get the PCC, etc then probably yes.
Thank you. I was wondering if I can upload Letter of Explanation on GCSKey online account? too bad I don't have any proof in writing

Have you try to get the PCC? Well, i admit it's difficult but it's still possible to get the PCC. Cause some police station still issued it for foreigner as long you not telling that the purpose is for immigration . If you do have a friend who is presently in Korea then you can tell them to help you . Even my self I paying someone to get it for me. Since one agency is charging so exspensive for that paper. Meanwhile this person is not.

It's the agency you mentioned before on your post above. The price is a bit exspensive. Meanwhile the person I'm paying is an old Korean friend of mine who just help me get the PCC . But yes I do pay him as well. But just not as much as that website asked for . Whoever have a friend in Korea would be better to ask for help, but those who not have a friend they mostly pay that agency to help.

Hello Mongchira,

I am having the same problem of getting the criminal record check from Korea. Could you please ask your friend if he could help me get this document too? I am willing to pay him as well. Here is my email address: woocheong1993@outlook.com. Many thanks

I have one police report I got 1 day before I left Korea. Can I use that report for my CIC application now?
If you left the country you cannot use it.

Hi everyone,

Today I got my landing letter - PR approved a week ago.

I submitted the free Criminal Record Check that I got from my local Korean Consulate (in Vancouver).

I also submitted emails from the Korean Police Agency, the Korean Foreign Office, the Korean consulate in Toronto - all stating that the document requested was no longer being issued by the Korean Police Agency. I also submitted emails forwarded to me from other people on this forum and elsewhere who had been officially informed that the document was no longer available. Thank you to all those who helped me in this way.

I am happy to forward any of the emails I received from official sources. It may make a difference that I am NOT KOREAN and do not live in Korea. Still, if I can help anyone through this bit of dodgy legislation, I will.

Thanks again for all your help and support.
Hi can you please forward the records or replies to me on kavvuman@gmail.com

I am in the same situation, tho I haven't submitted my husband's application yet. I am so anxious with the Police Clearance with Lapsed Records that the Immigration is asking. My husband worked in Korea from 2013 to 2018 and stayed in the Philippines for a year now. I am planning to get all the documents and requirements ready and submit them all at the same time. However, I have read some posts and threads saying that lapsed records is only given to SK citizens. I have also read that a Criminal Records Check Reply from SK embassy in the Philippines is also not good since it doesn't have the lapsed records. All PC should be coming from SK which is already frustrating. Can anyone help me how to obtain it or if there are any other options like a letter of explanation perhaps? Thank You so much

I worked in seoul for 2 years, which requires me to get a police clearance. I am now outside of seoul. I got the police clearance through korean embassy. That is what i sent to cic with a letter of explanation.

(e.g. embassy will only issue the standard police clearance.)

Fingers crossed that they accept these, otherwise i am *****!!!! Hehehehe.

Hello, Im a newbie here. I am going to apply for my husband under Family Class and he also worked in SK. I am just wondering if the Immigration allowed the Police Clearance from the Korean Embassy in your country which is a standard police clearance and just provide a letter of explanation?Thanks

You say exactly what I want to say. I'm living in South Korea now, I tried many ways on December 2019 to get it but it didn't work, even I asked my Korean friends to help anyway (go to police station of cities directly, call 182, call many police stations to ask) but they refused to issue Criminal (Investigation) Records Check Reply (범죄· 수사경력 회보서) because of recent changes to the Personal Information Protection Act. They just accepted to issue Background Check (Criminal Records) Certificate (신원조사(범죄경력)증명서). And they explain that police officers can search records for Korean citizen, but they cannot search records for foreigners.

My husband also called Canada Embassy for helping, they know the issue because many people contact them for this but they don't have any solutions.
