Documents of students who come from abroad:

Foreigners must present the last two academic reports corresponding to the studies carried out outside of Chile. These documents must be handed in at SEK Chile and previously legalized in the country of origin where they must be stamped with La Haya apostille. If the country of origin has an educational agreement with Chile, parents must present the documents at the offices of the Ministry of Education of Chile, for the processing and validation of the studies carried out in the country of origin.

If the country of origin does not have an educational agreement with Chile, a study validation process must be carried out through SEK Chile.

If the student does not have their Chilean identification document (RUN), the family must request the IPE (Provisional Educational Identifier) ​​at an office of the Ministry of Education or Citizen Services. Subsequently, they must deliver this document at SEK Chile.
