Mexicans and returning Mexicans have the right to receive education in Mexico, at all educational levels in public or private schools.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (SRE) and the Ministry of Public Education (SEP) through the General Directorate of Accreditation, Incorporation and Revalidation (DGAIR), support Mexican migrants who return to the country, and who seek to continue their studies.
The DGAIR and the SEP can revalidate the studies that Mexicans completed in the United States, for which the interested parties must present the documents that prove that they successfully completed their corresponding academic level. They must also have translations of these documents.
In addition, the apostille of academic documents of studies carried out abroad is not necessary and the lack of identity documents is not a factor to deny the revalidation process.

This procedure requires the same documents as the previous levels, primary and secondary, as well as their revalidation documents.
