Visas and documents
Citizens of most Western European countries, North and South America, Canada, Australia and New Zealand only require a valid passport to enter Perú. You need to ensure that your passport has at least 6 months left to run after the date that you enter the country.
If you are entering Perú for business or to study at a Peruvian University you must obtain a business or student visa before arrival in Peru.
Visitors entering Perú either by plane (usually into Jorge Chavez International Airport in Lima) or by border-crossing will receive a tourist card which is free of charge allowing a visit of up to 90 days in Peru.
The tourist card must be handed back when you leave Peru so be sure to keep it in a safe place during your visit.
Losing the card will incur plenty of hassle in replacing it. If your tourist card is lost or stolen then you must get a new one at Oficina de Migraciones, Avenida Espana 700 and Avenida Huaraz, Brena, Lima. If you do not have a tourist card upon leaving the airport you will receive a fine.
Your tourist card can be extended by 30 days (up to 3 times) in Lima, Cusco, Puno, Puerto Maldonado and Iquitos at the relevant Oficina de Migraciones. The cost is around US$25. Alternatively you can just leave the country, returning the following day. You will then receive another 90 days. Tourists can stay up to a maximum of 6 months in any one year, after which time you must leave. If you overstay your visa then you may be subject to a fine of US$20 per day.
When travelling between towns always have your passport close to hand since legally you have to have it ready for inspection at all times. In the cities it is probably best to leave it in the hotel safe and carry a photocopy of your passport with you.
It is also a good idea to make photocopies of any other important documents and to keep a note of your traveller's cheques, credit card account numbers and emergency phone numbers.
