The Ministry of Foreign affairs is an institution of the Peruvian Government in charge of representing the country on the international stage and providing services for Peruvinas living abroad.
The headquarters of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is housed in the Palacio Torre Tagle in Lima's city center which is considered one of the most magnificent and unique mansions from the early 18 century in South America. Decentralized Offices can be found in 12 Peruvian regions.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs for example is in charge of verifying legalized documents from abroad for the use in Peru (make sure the document first was legalized at a Peruvian consulate in the country of origin). Additionally, if you need an Apostille on a Peruvian document or have it legalized for the use abroad, the RREE is the place to go. Furthermore Peruvians, who have registered a birth, marriage or death at a Peruvian consulate abroad can get a legalized copy of the corresponding certificate quickly and easy at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
Through a network of over 60 embassies, nearly 70 consulates and 15 representations before internal organization such as the United Nations, the Ministry of Foreign affairs promotes and defends the interests of Peru globally and protects Peruvians living abroad.
