The role of the Ambassador and Permanent Representative of Chile to the United Nations is as the leader of the Chilean delegation to the United Nations in New York and as head of the Permanent Mission of Chile to the UN. The position has the rank and status of an Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary and is also the representative of Chile in the United Nations Security Council (2014–2015).

The Permanent Representative, currently Cristian Barros, is charged with representing Chile, both through its non-permanent seat on the U.N.
