The government of Peru has introduced additional COVID-19 travel restrictions for most travelers.

Key Points:

  • Travelers arriving from any country must have either a negative COVID-19 PCR test or antigen test or a medical certificate of epidemiological discharge that is no more than 72 hours old before boarding the plane to Peru. Children younger than 12 can show a certificate of health from a doctor instead of a negative test.
  • All passengers must fill out an online health form.
  • Additionally, as of Jan. 4, all passengers (foreign nationals, Peruvian nationals and residents) must quarantine for 14 days. This requirement applies to travelers who plan to spend less than 14 days in Peru. Individuals can be released from quarantine on the sixth day if they take an additional PCR test and it is negative.
  • Flights from Europe to Peru are currently suspended until at least Jan. 31. Flights from Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Jamaica, Mexico, Panama, Paraguay, the United States and Uruguay are still allowed.

Background: The Peruvian government says it will re-evaluate COVID-19 restrictions every 15 days.
