Visa and Embassy Info


U.S. Citizens:

Peruvian consulates have informed us that all students are to enter as a tourist. This will NOT require you to visit a Peruvian consulate before you depart, if you are a US citizen. When exiting the airport, custom officials are authorized to stamp up to 183 days to each tourist. When you enter the country, you will need to state how many days you will be in-country (as a tourist), and they will stamp your passport for that number of days.


Non-U.S. Citizens:

Please note that if you are not a U.S. citizen, you should contact your Consulate to verify specific entry requirements. As these requirements vary based on citizenship, non-U.S. citizens may not be permitted to travel to Peru without a visa or outside of their visa dates. Also, visa fees for non-U.S. citizens may differ so please be sure to check your specific consulate's website for the most up to date information.


Note: Embassy and consulate contact information is subject to change without notice. Please refer to the website of the embassy or consulate to verify information.
