    • The Government of Peru suspended the entrance of non-resident passengers traveling from Europe or South Africa (or travelers who have transited there in the last 14 days) until January, 31 2021.
    • Migraciones Suspending Use of Passport Stamps: The Peruvian Immigration Authority (Migraciones) announced that it has suspended the stamping of passports upon arrival to and departure from Jorge Chávez International Airport as part of ongoing efforts to minimize the risk of spreading COVID-19. If you are traveling, be aware that while your passport will not be stamped, a digital record of your arrival or departure will still be created. The measure applies to both commercial and repatriation flights and is effective immediately. More information can be found here (in Spanish): https://www.gob.pe/institucion/migraciones/normas-legales/1239779-00000202-2020-migraciones. 
    • Notarized Travel Authorizations for Minors:  Peruvian regulations require that minors present in Peru for more than 180 days must have a notarized travel letter to depart the country if they are not traveling with both parents.  This notarized letter must be presented to immigration officials prior to boarding a repatriation flight.  For more information on minor travel authorizations,  visit the Embassy site (in English) here.
  • Are health screening procedures in place at airports and other ports of entry? Yes
  • Temporary Foreign Resident Card: Americans residing in Peru can now request a temporary foreign resident card or “Carnet de Extranjería” Issuance Certificate online. The Issuance Certificate is recognized by Peruvian authorities as a temporary ID until individuals are able to obtain an official residency document from Peruvian Immigration. For more information, please visit https://sel.migraciones.gob.pe/servmig-valreg/constanciacecptp.
  • Travel Requirements: Legal Permanent Residents (LPR) who have been outside of the U.S. for less than 365 days are generally considered to be “in status” and do not need a returning resident visa. LPRs who have been outside of the U.S. for more than 365 days, will need to apply for a returning resident visa (SB-1). Please visit the Returning Resident Visa section of our website for more information. For additional information regarding your LPR status, contact U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) at www.uscis.gov or by calling +1-212-620-3418 (from overseas).
  • Emergency Travel Documents for LPRs:  LPRs who have lost their I-551 Permanent Resident cards (Green Card) and/or re-entry permits, and have an immediate need to return to the United States, can request an emergency appointment by emailing LimaIV@state.gov.  Due to limited staffing, appointment availability is extremely limited.  Please visit the Temporary Replacement of a Lost/Stolen Green Card section of our website for more information.
