Entry Requirements for Peru

Peru’s entry and exit requirements state that a valid passport is needed in order to visit any location in Peru. While there are no specific requirements for immunization, travelers are advised to get the Yellow Fever vaccination prior to arrival. The U.S. State Department offers additional insights into the entry and exit requirements for Peru, including what to do in the event your passport is lost or stolen.
Peruvian Immigration has changed the procedure for travelers exiting Peru with an emergency passport or a full-validity passport issued during their stay in Peru. In cases of passports that have been lost or stolen, the passenger will not have the entry stamp with which they entered Peru. In cases of newly issued passports, the entry stamp will be in the cancelled passport. Therefore travelers must “transfer” the entry stamp to their new passport before they are allowed to pass through Peruvian immigration. Previously, travelers were able to complete this process at the Jorge Chavez Airport in Lima. Now, travelers must take their new emergency passport to Peruvian Immigration headquarters at Av. España 730, Breña, Lima, open weekdays from 8:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in order to pay for and process the transfer. The current fee is approximately $8.00, or S/21. Read more…
