|Citizen of countries NOT mentioned on this list, it is vital that you check your specific visa requirements before traveling to Peru. We recommend visiting VisaHQ to stay up-to-date with all the latest visa & passport requirements. Visit VisaHQ.com
Travelers from New Zealand, South Africa, and many other Latin American countries DO NOT REQUIRE A VISA to enter Peru. However, it is still very important you check with your local consulate or embassy for the most up-to-date visa & passport requirements.
Citizens of ALL countries: To enter Peru, your passport must be valid for a minimum of 6 months after your travel dates. For example, if you are traveling to Peru in March, your passport must be valid through September of that year.
We strongly recommend making copies of your passport. Keep your original passport locked away in the safe of your hotel and carry a photocopy of your passport with you during your travels. You might also consider purchasing a passport holder to keep all your documents safe.
With a few exceptions, visas for citizens of the USA, UK, Canada, Japan, and most other EU Nationals are NOT REQUIRED for entry into Peru.
Tourists are permitted a 183-day, non-extendable stay, stamped into passports, as well as a tourist card called a Tarjeta Andina de Migración (Andean Immigration Card). Do not lose this! It must be returned upon exiting the country.
Note: If you are considering extending your stay, request the full amount of time to the immigration officer at the point of entry, since they have a tendency to issue 30-day or 90-day stays.
If you lose your tourist card, visit an oficina de migraciónes (immigration office) for a replacement.
Processing Time for Visas:
If your nationality requires a visa, allow for at least 24 hours for visa processing.
We always recommend that if you need to apply for a visa, you do so as soon as your flights have been scheduled.
We highly recommend visiting the World Health Organization website for the most up-to-date country-specific vaccination requirements.
