When establishing a foreign investment company in Korea, the power of attorney for incorporation must be notarized with an apostille. You need to make sure that the country is a signatory to the apostille.
However, there is no specific form for a power of attorney issued by a foreign country. Since the details of the delegation are often blank except for the information of the delegator and the delegate (the person to be delegated), it is necessary to fill in the details of the delegation according to the convenience of the applicant and the necessary work.
Although there is no specific form for a power of attorney for incorporation, it must contain the exact English name and address of the person to be delegated, as well as various documents for all procedures required for the incorporation of the entity to be delegated, and accurately describe the facts of the work to be performed.
If there are any procedures related to the Financial Investment Regulations that are required during the incorporation process, it is recommended that you delegate the authority for those tasks as well.
