Peruvian Tourist Visa Requirements & Procedures

peru-visa-requirementsNationals of a few other countries (see our pdf document “Visa Obligation for Foreign Nationals in Peru” above as published by the Peruvian Ministry of Foreign Affairs) need a visa even for tourism purposes. Peru doesn’t offer online visa application, so these nationals have to apply for their tourist visa at the Peruvian Consulate that has jurisdiction over their domicile or country of residence.

Unfortunately especially in Africa and Asia, the continents where most residents have to apply for a tourist visa, there are only a few Peruvian Diplomatic Missions. So finding the correct one and applying for the visa can be a mission. As the Peruvian Foreign Ministry unfortunately doesn’t publish which consulate has the jurisdiction over which countries, we recommend getting in contact with the nearest Peruvian Consulate in case there is none in your country of residence. Check out our section “Peruvian Embassies & Consulates Worldwide” to find a Peruvian Diplomatic Mission close by.
