Documentation & Legality

Make sure you have the necessary documentation and comply with the legal requirements for your visit to Peru.


To enter Peru, citizens of Western Europe, Asia, South America, North America, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa do not need a visa; however, an updated passport is required for travelers from other countries.

To obtain a tourist visa, you need a valid passport, two color photos, an application form, an airline ticket out of Peru, proof of economic solvency and to pay a certain fee.
If your passport is full of travel stamps and does not yet have an expiration date, you can request additional pages to be added to your passport at your country's embassy.
All visitors to Peru are given a tourist card upon arrival that must be filled out with personal information, each card has a duplicate and the immigration office keeps a copy of it.
CuscoPeru.com recommends that when entering the country it is necessary that the passport is valid for at least six months after you have arrived in the country. If the passport expires within the country, it can be renewed free of charge at the embassies of your country in Peru.
