How to fill in the online form to get the Peruvian health affidavit necessary to enter Peru

Health Declaration for entering Peru

How to fill in the online health form and get the Peruvian health affidavit

As part of the Covid entry regulations everyone - visitor, resident and Peruvian; adult and child; vaccinated or unvaccinated - who wants to enter Peru is required to present a Health Affidavit and Geolocation Authorization which can be easily and quickly obtained by filling out an online form provided by the Peruvian immigration office Migraciones in collaboration with the Peruvian Ministry of Health.

Completing the online form takes less than 10 minutes, is super simple, free of charge and at the end you immediately get the required health affidavit which you can either download or print. The form can be filled in up to 72h before your trip to Peru (within 72 hours prior to your arrival in Peru). You might be asked to show the health affidavit when checking in to your flight to Peru and/or at the airport in Peru and/or when traveling.

Please only use the official website for obtaining the health affidavit and don’t fall for a number of service providers offering to get the sworn statement for you while charging you anything from US$ 20 up to US$ 60 for something you can easily do yourself in a few minutes for free.

How to complete the online form and get the Peruvian health affidavit

If applicable, before you start switch off your VPN and any translation program that might run on purpose or automatically!!!

Step 1

Visit the official health affidavit website.

There have been reports that the page doesn’t always load correctly in some browsers, an error message pops up and people can't fill in the required fields on the first page. If you are using a VPN, switch it off, reload the page and it should work smoothly. Otherwise, try to use a different browser; we had no problems with Chrome, Firefox and Safari.

Additionally, we get many questions that people can't find nationalities or states or cities in the drop-down lists on the first and second page. Note that the names are always in Spanish (see Step 2)! If you see them translated, switch off any translation program that may run in the background automatically by your browser or intentionally otherwise error messages can pop up or you won't find the correct names.

Here now the first page.

Peruvian Health Declaration

How to fill in the online form to get the Health Affidavit and Geolocation Authorization to enter Peru. Here the first page you have to complete.

Step 2

At the bottom of the first page you can choose between English and Spanish, however while the labelling of the spaces you have to fill in changes from Spanish to English and vice versa, the drop-down list under Nationality remains in Spanish; so if you are, for example, a US national you won’t find United States or US on the list, but have to click on EE.UU (Estados Unidos, the Spanish name for the US); or if you are German, click on Alemania, etc. Those from the UK will look in vain for United Kingdom but as well for Reino Unido; select instead Gran Bretaña  (Great Britain) or, if you are from England, you could choose Inglaterra, or, if you are from Scottland, Escocia.

Then choose the document with which you are travelling: DNI, CE or PAS (passport) and enter the number. Complete the first page by adding your birthdate and then click on “Search”.

Step 3

The second page of the Peruvian online form to get the health affidavit is divided into two parts:

  • Part I: Personal Information
  • Part II: Health information

So, first fill in your personal information exactly as in the document you are traveling with, your arrival date and flight number. Under “Country of origin” the names are again in Spanish (see step 2).

Then choose your destination in Peru. You are asked for the department (Peruvian state), the province and the district; so, for example, if you stay in the district of Miraflores in Lima, choose Lima (department), Lima (province) and Miraflores (district) or if you travel to Machu Picchu choose Cusco (department), Urubamba (province), Machu Picchu (district). If you are traveling around, either choose your first destination or the place where you stay the longest.

Peruvian Health Declaration
How to fill in the online form to get the Health Affidavit and Geolocation Authorization to enter Peru. Here the second page, Part I Personal Information.

Now add a contact phone number and a cell phone number. Be aware that fields for the (cell) phone number are Peruvian-style, so, if necessary, you might have to split up the numbers to fit the spaces. The country code has to have at least two digits and, at the most, three numbers; the city code as well at least 2 and not more than three digits and the phone number at least 6, the cell phone number at least 8 digits. 

Then enter a valid e-mail address you have access to even during your travel.

The following fields seem to be aimed at Peruvian travellers (and in an earlier version of this form were in a section which only Peruvians had to fill out) and don't really fit international tourists.

You are asked for your "real address", but you can only choose a Peruvian department (state), province and district. So, just as above, where you had to choose your destination in Peru, use the address of your hotel or the address of friends / family you are staying with. If you are traveling around, choose the first hotel you are staying at or the place where you stay the longest.

Peruvian Health Declaration
How to fill in the online form to get the Health Affidavit and Geolocation Authorization to enter Peru. Here the second page, Part I Personal Information

And the next field seems even stranger; you are asked to enter your "real address after isolation". This just makes little sense for foreign travellers, so just enter the street address of your accommodation.

The next fields aren't better as you should add the persons who are with you at your "real address". We recommend to either leave these fields blank (each person traveling should have his or her own health declaration anyway) or enter the information of whoever is traveling with you. After entering the data of a person, you have to click "Add", otherwise the system won't accept the entry.

Step 4

In Part II Health Information, as of May 2022, you just have to answer three Covid-related questions and then tick the box before the declaration of oath; the geolocation authorization for your cell phone, which never had a legal basis in Peru, is gone.

To get your personal Health Affidavit required to enter Peru, please complete the online form as described above.

Before traveling to Peru, please as well pre-register your arrival

Since October 2020 everyone traveling to Peru by air is asked to pre-register his or her arrival in the country on an app. As pre-registered travel...

      @Sunil Hello Sunil,

      you are right. I just checked it and the "I accept the geolocation of my declared cell phone", which didn't have any legal basis anyway, is gone. Great. Thank you so much for pointing the change out. 

      And you don't get an e-mail after you filled in the form. When you click on "registrar" at the bottom of the page a new window opens. There you see the health affidavit which you must either print or download.

      If you didn't do that, you can fill in the form again.

      @Julia-h Hello Julia,

      something using the "imprimir" button doesn't work properly. So, do the following: when you completed the form and click on registrar you get the filled in form. On the top you can choose either to print, which sometimes doesn't work (error messages pop up or the page remains blank), or to "descargar" (download). If you click on descargar you can save the form and as well print it. That should work.

    Hi Eva,

    Thank you so much for this site, it is a real breath of fresh air.  I need your advice.  I fly out of Juliaca to Lima and arrive in Lima at 5:20pm.  I fly out of Lima to Panama the next day arriving at 8:11am.  Do I have enough time to obtain an antigen test during this layover for my final destination that requires it?  From reviews I have been reading, it seem near to impossible...  Your advice would be greatly appreciated!  Thank you.

      @Gina Hello Gina,

      thanks for your praise.

      You sure you only need an antigen test? Then best use Unilabs at the airport. They offer antigen tests and PCR tests at the airport for passengers, which you are, 24/7. You find them in the parking lot. The antigen test is S/ 100, the PCR test S/ 185; results are ready in one hour (antigen) or 12 hours (PCR). The lab asks to please make an appointment here but you can as well just walk in and get the test done.

      @Sunflower Hi Eva, 

      Thanks for your response.  

      For my final destination, they require either an antigen or PCR test.  Arrival time is 4:30 the next day which is out side of the PCR 48hr window I would get before boarding the flight from Juliaca the day before...

      What I really need to know is... Will it actually take an hour to receive the result?  Is there a short waiting period?  I leave the next morning at 4:30... So there is little room for error.


      KR, 

      Gina

      @Gina Hello GIna,

      honestly I can't follow anymore. You arrive in Lima from Juliaca at 05.20 pm. So, as the flight takes around 1.5h you leave Juliaca at around 3.45pm. One time you wrote you arrive in Panama the next day at 8.20 am, then arrival time is 4.30, then you leave at 4.30. No matter when you arrive the next day in Panama, from leaving Juliaca to arriving in Panama you are clearly inside the 48h window. Or am I missing something?

      Anyway, having little room for error is never a good thing in Peru, something can always go wrong. So, I don't know how many people will be at the testing center when you arrive. Therefore, best make an appointment under the link I provided above and waiting times will be minimal. And yes, if you take an antigen test you usually have the result in an hour, PCR test results will take up to 12 hours.

    I filled out affidavit of health on 5/16/22.  My flight is May 19th at 5:00pm. The affidavit does not show time of the day I prepared. I do not remember what time I prepared the form.  So I tried to fill out the form again, but it won't let me do it again.  How do you know the affidavit was done within 72 hours?  It only shows date of filing.  Am I missing something?

      @kyong Rhee Hello,

      no, you don't miss anything, you worry too much.

      If the system allowed you to fill in the form and you filled it in on May 16 (and this date is on your health declaration) arriving in Peru on May 19 (so three days or more or less 72 hours later), you are fine. Nobody, neither when checking in nor when entering Peru will know the exact hour when you filled in the form. So, all good.

      Have a nice trip.

      @jen Hello Jen,

      the earliest you can fill out the health declaration is 72 hours before your trip to Peru. So, if the flight leaves on May 20 at 05.00 pm exactly now we are 72 hours before. 

      Personally, I would wait until tomorrow or even the day after tomorrow to fill in the form. Then you shouldn't have a problem. Your friend just should make sure to have the health declaration when checking in to the flight.

      @Sandra Parker Hello Sandra,

      the Peruvian Health declaration website has no option to upload a vaccine certificate. You just need the affidavit either in digital or printed form.

      When you are flying into Peru just after leaving the plane and before immigration there is personnel from the Ministry of Health which checks the Health declaration and the vaccine certificate. That's it.

    Hi there!
    I have two questions: fist I was wondering if Peru recognize the just one Johnson & Johnson vaccine as the the double (2  vaccines) Pfizer vaccinations? I received the only required J&J dose and one Pfizer booster.
    My second question is about how to fill out the cell phone number spaces. I am from the States so for country-code you write 01, then ask for State that here are 3 digit, lastly the rest of the cell # that are 7 numbers, however when I write down the left 7 numbers it comes as incomplete. As the article said to split up the numbers, would t mean to take one State number and place it on te slot for cell number to make it 8, so that the system accepts my entry? Thanks so much for your help! Super helpful article! B.

      @Beba Hello Beba,

      Answer question 1:

      Until the end of March 2022 the Peruvian Covid regulations indicated that you must have “completed your vaccination scheme”, so be fully vaccinated; meaning that those with one shot of the J&J vaccine as well were or, as this never really worked in Peru, should have been considered fully vaccinated.

      This changed at the beginning of April 2022 with an update of the Covid regulations (Supreme Decree 030-2022-PCM) and was confirmed just recently with the new Supreme 041-2022-PCM that is in effect since May 1, 2022. In both regulations the “vaccination scheme” is gone, so there is no “fully vaccinated” anymore. Instead, you now find in the regulations that you must have received your first and second dose of a vaccine against Covid (“primera y segunda dosis de vacunación contra la COVID-19”) regardless which vaccine brand was used (see Supreme Decree 041-2022-PCM, article 4.4).

      So, one shot J&J isn’t what you consider “fully vaccinated”; it’s just one shot. So, having received one shot and a booster is only considered 2 shots.

      You find more detailed info in our article “Covid entry requirements and regulations for Peru” (check as well the comments).

      Answer question 2:

      Yes, exactly.

      Lets assume your phone is 01 (country code) 123 (city /state code) 1234567 (cell phone number)

      The country code has to have two or three digits.
      The city code as well two or three digits.
      The cell phone number at least eight digits.

      So, you fill in the fields as follows

      Country Code: 01 (US country code, two digits, fine)
      City code: 12 (you need one more digit for the cell phone number so here just the first two digits of your city code)
      Phone number: 31234567 (the first digit is the last digit of your city code, the rest your cell phone number and voila now you have the required eight digits in the cell phone number field and you shouldn't have a problem anymore)

      @Sunflower Hi Eva, thank you so much for your amazing insight, I was really close to not get a Covid Test with me because the airline I am traveling with informed me that I did not need a test, and that my J&J vaccine was considered "fully vaccinated". So, by now I just have the J&J, that Perú does NOT consider as a "full vaccine", and the booster from their favorite Pfizer.
      Also thank you for the clarification on how to fill out the telephone numbers!
      Now, one more question: I just have a US cell phone number, but on the slots of telephone number (aka Land line) should I write the home telephone number in Peru where I am staying at? Thanks again!!

      @Beba Bode Hello Beba,

      I just followed a quite interesting discussion of a few travelers and foreigners living in Peru about the acceptance of the J&J vaccine. While everyone only having the one shot and a booster didn't have any problem entering Peru, the experinences when doing things in Peru were varied. Most said that no matter where they went or what they wanted to do they were first always denied entry and had to explicitly point out that the one shot J&J should be considered as 2 shots and the booster as their third shot. A few then were allowed to enter, most others still denied, sometimes a supervisor was called and then after some discussions either allowed or most often denied entry. One person stated that he has a vaccination card where the field for the first vaccination is crossed out, his one shot J&J was written in the second vaccination field and his booster in the third vaccination field. He claimed that he never has any problems. So, having the one shot and a booster is a mess in Peru and hit or miss.

      With your phone number you have two options: either put your cellphone number as well in the fields supposed for the landline number or just put the number of the place you stay in Peru. Honestly, it doesn't matter. No one will ever use the number anyway.

      @Beba Bode Hi Eva, I have one more doubt: regarding covid testing it says, "test result that is not older than 48 hours after being issued and before boarding the plane has to be presented". It may sound silly, but I am taking a local flight before boarding on the international flight. So, my international flight leaves 5 hours after the local flight. Which time frame should I consider? Many Thanks!

      Just have your vaccination certificates, either in digital or paper form, proving that you had three doses of a vaccine against Covid on hand.

      Check with the airline flying you to Peru, if they have other / additional requirements.

      @Sunflower Hang on.  I'm pretty confident that you had to have had your booster 14 days before arrival.  Are you *certain* about this answer?

      And I'm really sorry if I'm wrong.  I've just done a ton of research for the trip I'm leading, and I was *adamant* that my people get their booster at least 14 days prior (based on my research)

      @JT Nelms Hello JT,

      yes I’m sure, at least that’s what the current Peruvian Covid regulations, the Supreme Decree 041-2022-PCM, says.

      In 2021, shortly after the rule either vaccination or neg. PCR test was introduced, you had to have your vaccination 14 days prior to your arrival. This passage is gone from the regulations. I’m not sure when exactly it was changed, but latest with the first Covid-related Supreme Decree of 2022 (010-2022-PCM).

      If you have a look at the current one DS 041-2022-PCM in article 4.4 it says for entering Peru, for example, the following: “Los peruanos, extranjeros residentes y extranjeros no residentes de 12 años a más cuyo destino final sea el territorio nacional, en calidad de pasajeros e independientemente del país de procedencia, deben acreditar haberse aplicado la primera y segunda dosis de vacunación contra la COVID-19 en el Perú o en el extranjero, y la tercera dosis los mayores de 18 años que residan en el país y se encuentren habilitados para recibirla, según protocolo vigente. En su defecto, pueden presentar una prueba molecular negativa con fecha de resultado no mayor a 48 horas antes de abordar en su punto de origen.

      So, translated freely: Peru requires an official vaccination certificate from everyone older than 12 years - Peruvian, foreign resident of Peru and non-resident foreigner - entering the country, proving they had the first and second dose of a vaccination against Covid-19. Residents of Peru older than 18 years must present a certificate of a third shot. Failing to do so (so, if you are not vaccinated according to your age group), a negative real-time COVID-19 molecular (RT-PCR) test result that is not older than 48 hours after being issued and before boarding the plane has to be presented.

      Nowhere in the current regulations you find that the vaccination or booster has to be administered 14 days before your arrival.

      So, not sure where you did your research and how up-to-date the information there was. Anyway, I base my statements each time on the current version of Covid regulations published by the Peruvian government in the official Peruvian gazette El Peruano. Airlines, tour operators or other private companies might ask for something different.

      @Kathryn McMeekin Hello Kathryn,

      I can't tell you which rules and regulations are in place in September. So, today I can only answer your question according to the current Covid regulations Supreme Decree 041-2022-PCM which are in effect since today, May 1, 2022. The regulations are usually updated every 3 to 4 weeks.

      So, as things are today,

      - yes you have to fill in the health declaration and most probably have to present it at the check-in of your flight to Peru and definitely when entering Peru either in digital or printed form.
      - if you have 3 doses of a vaccination against Covid, you are fine and do not need an additional PCR test, neither to enter Peru nor to do anything in Peru. Just have your vaccination certificates, either in digital or paper form, on hand. Check with the airline flying you to Peru, if they have other / additional requirements.

      As said above, the requirements might change until you travel. But if you have 4 shots by the time you travel, you should have no problems.

      @Vane Hello Vane,

      If you are staying in the city of Lima, select Lima as “Destination department” and again Lima as “Destination province”.

      Then the question is where in Lima are you staying. The Peruvian capital is divided into 43 districts.

      So, if you are, for example, staying somewhere in the historic city center or at the Sheraton Hotel, then choose as “Destination district” as well Lima. However, if you stay at the Westin or near the El Olivar Park or the Golf Club then you are in San Isidro; or if you stay at the Hilton or Marriott or somewhere around the Kennedy Park you are in Miraflores, so you have to select Miraflores as “Destination district”.

      If you don’t know in which district your accommodation is, let me know the address, so I can check for you.

    I was wondering if I can apply for a new form since the first is probably wrong. I only wrote my first name and not my middle names, is this wrong? So for example: full name Laura Luna Magdalena Jansen. What do I need to write by first name and surname? I wrote with first name Laura and last name Jansen, is this correct? Or is it first name Laura Luna Magdalena and last name Jansen?

      @laura Hello Laura,

      you should put all your names as in your passport.

      So, if your full name is Laura Luna Magdalena Jansen, you put Laura Luna Magdalena in the "first name" field and Jansen in first "last name" field. The second last name field remains empty as you only have one surname.

      You can fill in the form a second time, no problem.

      Greetings

      P.S. I deleted your second identical comment.

    I am travelling from Uk and I have had two vaccinations and one booster for Covid 19. Do I still need a pre-departure Covid-19 test?

      @Sandra Hello Sandra,

      No!

      As of today (!!!) for entering Peru and for doing anything in the country you are fine with your three doses of a vaccination against Covid. Have proof of your two shots and the booster with you either digitally or in paper form and you won't have any problems.

      To not encounter any trouble on your way to Peru, check regulations of the airline and of transit countries.

      Greetings

    Hi, I am interested as we are planning to travel to Peru in May, what does it actually mean "geolocation authorization" - is that a passenger tracking?
     For example does is that means that if we are traveling with bus and there is one person on bus that is covid positive, would they track us down and send to quarantine for 14 days, even if we don't have symptom? 
    I actually really wish to know what geolocation authorization means in practical way? 

    thank you!

      @maja Hello Maja,

      That’s a really interesting question no-one asked me before. And honestly, I can’t answer it to your satisfaction as even Peruvian lawyers who stumbled upon this not legally sound requirement and who got in contact with involved authorities (Migraciones, Ministry of Health and Ministry of Transport and Communications) requesting answers and who combed through every law and legislation regarding this matter didn’t find answers.

      First of all, as far as I know since October 2020, when air travel to Peru was possible again and the health declaration with the geolocation authorization was introduced, not a single cellphone of a traveler was tracked, no-one was located through their cellphone and put into quarantine because someone on the same bus has tested positive, or similar.

      However, to enter Peru you must (!) accept the geolocation of the cellphone you registered in the health declaration form; which means that you allow someone - Migraciones (?), the Ministry of Health (?), the Ministry of Transport and Communications (?) - to locate your cellphone at any given time.

      And here the legal problem starts. Before you can accept such a requirement, according to the Peruvian law of the protection of personal data, you must be informed who is collecting your data, who gets access to your data, what is done with your data, for what purpose is your data collected and for how long the authorization is valid. When filling in the health declaration you don’t get this information. And while there are quite a number of regulations concerning this matter, not one gives exact info. And above-mentioned lawyers as well didn’t get exact answers when they got in contact with involved authorities, they were just referred to some regulation which didn’t contain the information they were looking for.

      And even though Peru is still in a State of Emergency and in a State of a Health Emergency where some basic rights can be restricted and state intervention into the rights of people can be allowed, lawyers agree that the geolocation authorization lacks a precise legal basis as no part of the form details the use and the purpose of it and the regulations don’t do it either. Once you entered Peru, you can even revoke the authorization on the Agencia Digital under Mesa de Partes Virtual, which of course no traveler knows about or bothers doing.

      Anyway, after reading many articles on that topic, it seems to me that at the moment (!) nothing is done with you geolocation authorization. However, this can change any time, and, even though not legally sound, it gives authorities the right to locate your cellphone at any time, when they think that the public health or whatever is in danger.

      Greetings
      Eva
