Practical info before your visit

Det är alltid bra att läsa på lite om destinationen du ska till. På den här sidan ger vi dig praktisk information inför din resa till Peru för att förenkla dina förberedelser.

 

Passport/Visa

In general citizens of the countries in the listing below do NOT have to apply for a visa at an embassy or consulate before entering Peru. A passport valid at least six months with at least 2 free pages in the visa section is enough to get a Tourist Visa (actually it’s only an entry stamp) directly at the border or the airport. Children should travel on their own passport with photo. Below listed countries can get a tourist visa at airport immigrations or any other Peruvian border without applying for it at an embassy or consulate (for a more detailed listing, please check out our pdf document “Visa Obligation for Foreign Nationals in Peru” above as published by the Peruvian Ministry of Foreign Affairs):

  • North America: Citizens of the United States, Canada and Mexico
  • Central America: Citizens of most Central American countries (exception Costa Rica, Cuba, El Salvador, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Nicaragua, Dominican Republic)
  • South America: Citizens of all South American countries
  • Europe: Citizens of all countries within the European Union and Switzerland
  • Africa: Citizens of South Africa
  • Asia: Citizens of Brunei, Indonesia, Israel, Japan, Laos, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore and Thailand
  • Oceania: Citizens of Australia and New Zealand

Vaccination

Peru’s geographical location places high demands on vaccination protection. Your reception evaluates your needs and we recommend that you arrive well in advance – preferably 4-6 weeks before your planned departure.

Security

Peru has good security for tourists, but you should still take precautions, such as storing and carrying valuables safely, being careful and attentive to traffic, and avoiding larger crowds and demonstrations.

Climate

Peru’s rainy season runs from October to April with the risk of flooding and other problems. If you are in the country during this time, stay up-to-date on the situation for prevention.
Earthquakes also occur with the country’s location near a tectonic plate boundary.

Travel insurance

As always, we recommend you to take proper travel insurance. In many cases, such is included in home insurance. Check out what applies in your case.

Currency

Sol (PEN)

Electricity

The same electrical outlet standard as in Europe, so normally you will not need an adapter. However, there are exceptions, so it is still recommended to bring one.
