As part of the Covid entry regulations everyone - visitor, resident and Peruvian; 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 5 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 planned 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
Visit the official health affidavit website. There have been reports that the page doesn’t 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. This is the first page.
At the bottom of the 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 EEUU (Estados Unidos); or if you are German, click on Alemania, etc. 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”.
The second page of the Peruvian online form to get the health affidavit is divided into three parts:
- Part I: Personal Information
- Part II: If you are a resident in Peru
- Part III: Health information
So, first fill in your personal information exactly as in the document you are traveling with and your arrival date. Under “Country of origin” the country names again are in Spanish. Then choose your destination in Peru. You are asked for the department (state), the province and the district; so, for example, you stay in the district of Miraflores in Lima, choose Lima (department), Lima (province) and Miraflores (district) or 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. Then add a contact (cell) phone number and a valid e-mail address.
Do NOT skip Part II “If you are a resident in Peru” even though you are not a resident! Residents fill in their Peruvian address and anyone staying with them here. As the “Real address information” are required fields, visitors have to fill in an address as well. So, just 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.
In Part III Health Information as of August 2021 you just have to answer three Covid-related questions (further questions regarding your general health that had to be answered before seem to have disappeared) and then tick the boxes before the two declarations of oath and the geolocation authorization.
After reading the legal terms which unfortunately are only available in Spanish, click on Register.
You immediately get the Health Affidavit which you can download or print.
The sworn statement looks like this.
