Chilean Consulates

This is to be used by anyone applying to a school in Chile and trying to decide through which consulate to apply for your student visa:

This is VERY IMPORTANT--all consulates are different, but you may only apply to the consulate with jurisdiction over your school address.  All consulates that we're aware of require a personal appearance (to pick up your visa), an FBI Background check, etc. If we haven't already discussed this, now is the time, so please don't hesitate to call or stop by and we can figure it out together.

You may begin your research with the following list:
