Required Documents to Apply
Peru is a country in South America that is bordered by the South Pacific to the west. It has incredible natural resources, making the country a paradise for ecologists. However, while nature is beautiful in Peru, that is not the most popular attraction. You must have heard about the Inca people and how the ruins in Peru are something unique in the world. You can take the Inca trail and see Machu Pichu, an incredible archaeological site of the Inca people. It is a unique experience that you must do if you get to Peru. Other than that, you can go bird watching in Peru since one-third of the number of bird species can be found there. The Amazon basin is not to be overlooked either.
Before traveling to Peru, you must see whether or not you need to apply for a visa. Fortunately, the visa policy of Peru pretty liberal, and chances are that you may not need a visa at all. The citizens of 99 countries and jurisdictions are allowed to enter Peru and stay for up to 183 days, depending on the nationality. One thing that is worth mentioning is that the citizens of South America countries can enter Peru without a passport. They need only an ID card. However, there are a few exceptions. It seems that the nationals of Venezuela, Guyana, Suriname, and French Guiana do need a passport. All the other nationalities must go to the nearest Peruvian embassy and apply for a consular visa.
If you want to find out quickly if you need a visa or not, you can make inquiries about Peru’s visa policy. You can find it online. However, we suggest a faster solution: iVisa’s Visa Checker. Click on the Visa Checker button located in the top-right corner, select your country of origin in the menu on the left, and choose Peru in the menu on the right. The result will display whether or not you need a visa, and if you do, you will get a list of the nearest embassies where you can apply.
iVisa does not process Peru visa applications because electronic visas are not available. Even so, we would still like to help, which is why we give you access to our customer support. The service is available 24/7 and it is entirely free of charge.
If the Visa Checker lets you know that you do need a visa, you must learn about the your visa requirements. The internet is full of such information, but we recommend that you take it with skepticism in mind and use it as a reference only. The information you find online is not always the most reliable. That is why our suggestion is to call the embassy or the diplomatic mission and ask them about the requirements. That way, you get the info you need from a reliable source. In the meantime, what we can tell you is that all travelers who plan a trip to Peru need a valid passport that remains as such for at least another 6 months from the date of arrival.
We regret that we cannot help with the Peru visa application itself, though we hope that the information above helps you get started.
