Apostilled Certificates

One of the most important characteristics of the degrees issued by Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile is that they may be apostilled thanks to the Hague Apostille Convention. The Apostille is a unique certification that allows for expediting the process of accreditation and certification of foreign degrees or documents in any of the member countries of the Apostille Convention.

Documents issued in Chile to be used in a member country of the Apostille Convention that have been certified by means of an Apostille, must be recognized in any other member country of the convention without the need for any other kind of certification.
