Chile – Registration codes for foreign nationals

Written by
Munita & Olavarría largest boutique firm focusing on HR law.

For a two-week period, the Department of Foreign Affairs has introduced terminals in its premises so foreign nationals can obtain a registration code.

This registration code will subsequently (most probably during the second semester of 2019) allow them to apply online for the following:

  • permanent residence;
  • visa extensions;
  • nationalisation.


This should make these procedures more user friendly, as foreign nationals should no longer need to send all required paperwork by courier.

(Note: After this two-week period, foreign nationals can request their registration code from the Civil and Registration Service offices).
