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

Until October 12, 2022 everyone - visitor, resident and Peruvian; adult and child; vaccinated or unvaccinated - who came to Peru by air was required to present a Health Affidavit when entering the country. This changed with the Ministerial Resolution 811-2022-MINSA.

So, since October 12, 2022, the Health Declaration is no longer required to enter Peru! The website to fill in the form has been deactivated as of October 20, 2022.

As Peru is still in a state of (national health) emergency and prevention and control measures to stop the spread of Covid remain in place at least until February 24, 2023, things can be tightened again in no time and the health declaration might be necessary in the future again. So, for now, we leave our guide to fill in the form below.

 

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 entering 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 country from which the flight departs to Peru) 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 "adjust" your phone number to the Peruvian structure.

  • the country code must have 2 or 3 digits
  • the city / area code must have 2 or 3 digits
  • the phone number must have at least 6 digits, the cell phone number at least 8 digits

Example: let’s assume you have a US cell phone number which usually is structured as follows: +1 (country code) 123 (area code) 1234567 (number). This cell phone number won't be accepted as there are two problems with it: the system doesn’t allow the “+” and the number only has 7 digits. So, just enter in the country code field 01, in the city code field 12 (the first two digits of your area code) and in the number field 31234567 (last digit of your area code and then the 7 digits of your number). Problem solved.

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.

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 II Health Information.

Click registrar, and you immediately get the Health Affidavit. At the top of the page, you can and, as once you leave this page you can't return, should download ("descargar") and/or print ("imprimir") the form. Sometimes, if you have selected "imprimir" the window that opens remains blank. Just shut the print window with the "x" at the top right, choose the "descargar" button and print from there.

The document you receive looks like this.

Please consider this picture of the health affidavit as sample only; the automatically by the system generated Health Affidavit number on the document has been erased with zeros, personal data with x x x and the QR code completely. 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 trave...

      @Lily Hello Lily,

      when you close the window before downloading or printing the form everything is gone.

      So, yes, you not only can, but have to start from scratch and re-enter all your personal information and other necessary info. Once you click on registrar, do not close the window with the health declaration but either download ("descargar") and/or print ("imprimir") the form; the buttons are at the top of the page.

    Trying to find info on what we'll need for entry, we do not need visas. Do you any suggestions of where to find info detailed info of what we'll need. Not been having much luck just trying to google so a little confused.

      @ollie Hello Ollie,

      Yes, you are right, as South African passport holders you do not have to apply for a visa at a Peruvian consulate before coming to Peru. You will get an “authorization to enter and stay as a tourist” (nothing more than an entry in a database) for up to 90 days.

      I’m not sure what additional info regarding entry requirements you are looking for. As said above, you can enter Peru visa-free. You just need a passport with at least 2 free pages in the visa section that is valid for at least another 6 months upon arrival. Be as well aware that non-resident foreigners entering Peru must prove return or onward travel. While usually Peruvian immigrations doesn’t bother to check, when checking in to your flight to Peru, some airlines want to see a return or onward flight ticket (some accept a bus ticket) out of Peru.

      In our article “Tourist Visa” you find more information.

      Next to these general requirements there are the Covid entry requirements. In the past, they were re-evaluated every 4 to 6 weeks, but we haven’t seen any major updates for over two months now.

      No-one can tell you now how the Covid requirements will be in November!

      At the moment to enter Peru Peruvians and foreign residents 18 years and older must present a vaccination certificate proving they had 3 doses of a vaccine against Covid while non-resident foreigners (visitors) 18 years and older must present proof of being vaccinated according to the “vaccination scheme” of their home country. Those not vaccinated according to the above rules can present 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. And you need, of course, the Health Declaration.

      You find more info about the Covid regulations in our article “Covid entry requirements and regulations for Peru” which is updated as soon as something changes.

      As things stand today, that’s it. But be aware that regulations can change from one day to the other in Peru.

      @Sarah Hello Sarah,

      no, when you enter Peru at a land border, the health declaration is not required.

      When land borders opened about half a year ago and no-one was sure if it's needed or not, careful travelers just filled it in and added as flight number 0000. Did work with no problems.

      @Chris Hello Chris,

      Thank you so much for your feedback!

      The intention of this article, and actually of many, many others here on LimaEasy, is to help people find their way on their own in Peru without worrying to do something wrong, introducing them to the country, its people, its horrendous bureaucracy, all the good and beauty but as well the ugly and absurdities, and giving advice and trying to find solutions for the impossible; so overall making visiting and living in Lima and Peru easier for foreigners.

      It makes me extremely happy that this article did exactly that and helped you conquering this little hurdle.

      Now, you are off to Peru. Have a great stay and enjoy your time.

      Thanks again! You made my day!

    I can confirm that this form really is broken. I did not know about it until the airport refused to print my boarding pass! It took three us us an HOUR to get this stupid form to submit using my phone. None of the fields make sense for an American, even if you speak Spanish. Almost was refused boarding over this stupid thing!

      @Lana Hello Lana,

      I’m sorry that you had such a horrible experience.

      However, especially since Covid, it’s crucial to inform yourself about any restrictions or requirements before (!) traveling. Usually, the airlines as well send you information about entry requirements or you can find them on their website. In addition, we from LimaEasy dedicated a complete article to the current Covid entry requirements and regulations for Peru, which is among the top search results on Google. So, all the info you need is out there.

      Anyway, since Peru resumed air travel in October 2020, the health declaration is obligatory for everyone wanting to enter the country; later, being vaccinated or having a negative PCR test became mandatory as well. Both documents are checked during check-in in your country of origin; if you can’t provide them, you are denied boarding.

      Honestly, I really don’t know what took you an hour to fill in the form, especially as you speak Spanish. Above article additionally explains every little step and hurdle, so there shouldn’t be any problem to fill in the few questions in less than 10 minutes. And it doesn’t matter if the questions make sense for US Americans - I know some don’t and are clearly intended for Peruvians and residents. But you are traveling to Peru and the questions and answers must make sense to the Peruvian authorities.

      Hope, the rest of your trip to Peru is a success.

      All the best

      @Karen Hello Karen,

      the fields for adding a person are not obligatory, so just leave them blank.

      As there are problems on a regular basis with adding a person, we always recommend leaving these fields blank even if a person travels with company; each person needs his/her health declaration anyway.

      Greetings

      @Oscar Reynoso Hello Oscar, 

      You shouldn’t have a problem entering Peru, getting around and doing things as the one shot J&J vaccine should be considered as two shots and you additionally have a booster. 

      However, some airlines flying into Peru have stricter policies. So, best check with your airline, if your vaccinations are enough or if they want to have a negative PCR test.

      as described above (see step 2 and step 3) the country names in the drop-down menu under "Nationality" and "Country of Origin" are always in Spanish. So you won't find the United States or US. Click on EE.UU, the Spanish abbreviation for Estados Unidos.

      @Malu B Hello Malu,

      showing the downloaded pdf on your phone or as well a picture of it (if it's clearly legible, including the number and QR code) is fine.

      However, even though not required, it's always good to have a "backup" in printed form in case the phone gets lost, broken or runs out of power.

      @Paolo Hello Paolo,

      You can fill in the health declaration form the earliest (!!!) 72 hours before entering Peru, so within 72 hours prior to your arrival in Peru.

      72h are 3 days, so, if you arrive on July 16, let's say at 10.00 am, you can only fill in the form in the time frame between July 13 10.01 am (72h before you land in Peru) and your check-in (you have to present the form there).

      Today is only July 11; so just wait two or three more days and you shouldn't have a problem.

      Above article is exclusively dedicated to explain in detail how to fill in the health declaration form. If you work your way slowly through each step, you shouldn't have a problem filling in the form even if you are a senior citizen.

      In Step 1 you find the link to the official website. Just click on the red "Visit the official health affidavit website" and you automatically end up on the correct page.

      If you have any questions, feel free to ask me.

      yes, each person needs his/her own form even though you added him/her to your form.

      So, to be frank, adding a person to your form doesn't make sense and, as often error messages pop up, doing so makes the whole thing more complicated than necessary.
