Enciso has joined from Libertad Asuncion in Paraguay for a reported £9.5 million, subject to obtaining a work visa and international clearance.
When the first-team group returns for pre-season training later this month, the 18-year-old will join them.
“Julio is an exciting young talent. We’re really looking forward to helping him develop,” said Brighton boss Graham Potter.
“He will complement our existing attacking options this coming season.”
Enciso has 11 goals and three assists in 14 league games for Libertad this season, helping his team to a four-point lead at the top of the table.
He made his international debut at the age of 17 and has five caps for his country.
