The Peruvian government has extended the current state of emergency to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.

Key points:

  • The original state of emergency, which was declared in March, has been extended to April 26.
  • As a result, airports and ports will remain closed.
  • The only flights allowed are ones arranged between governments to repatriate Peruvian nationals.

Additional information: In addition to the state of emergency that was declared in March, there were a number of travel restrictions implemented at that time. International and domestic travel was halted, and the country’s borders were closed, as were the immigration offices. Many public-facing businesses were also closed, except for ones providing essential services.

Analysis & Comments: The extension will impact the movement of people into Peru. Depending on how the COVID-19 situation unfolds, there could be additional measures announced in the coming weeks. Employers should account for affected travelers and rearrange travel schedules accordingly.
