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...

      @oll Hello Oll,

      as long as you are on the main page, you can just scroll up and edit the data you entered. However, once you click on "registrar" and have the Health Declaration on your screen, you can't change anything anymore. You have to start from the beginning again. No problem.

      So before clicking "registrar" check that all the information entered is correct.

      Greetings

    Christian · 08/02/2022
    Hello
    I have recently tested positive for a Corona infection and I intend to travel to Lima within less than two weeks. I read that Peru has lowered quarantine time from 14 to 10 days. Currently, my gap between arriving in Peru and the test date is 14 days. Hence I would have to tick the boxes in Step 4 twice with a yes (contact with a person ill with Corona virus as well as isolation indication within past 14 days). Could I enter Peru then? Or would I have to go in quarantine in Peru? Am I even able to board the airplane in the first place?
    Thanks for your answer.
    Best,
    Christian

      @Christian Hello Christian,

      I can’t answer your questions as I know of no-one who answered one or more questions with yes and until now couldn’t find anything in the regulations about it.

      If you are fully vaccinated, you can enter Peru just with your vaccination certificate and your health declaration form. If you are not vaccinated, you need a negative PCR test result and the health declaration. And if you don’t have symptoms and hopefully are healthy (otherwise you should better stay home) neither the airline nor the health official from the Peruvian Ministry of Health who check the form at the airport can know about your positive test.

      So, answering the questions on the form depends on your honesty (be aware that you declare under oath that the information provided by you is correct).

      However, if you are honest and check "yes" you have to live with possible consequences:

      - the airline might not allow you to fly (you should check with them; some allow you to fly already 6 days after a positive test if you are vaccinated and don’t have symptoms)

      - in Peru upon arrival you might be questioned, might be asked to get a test done, might be put into quarantine (only ever heard that being done with people who had symptoms); or no-one checks your health declaration properly and you can just enter the country without anyone bothering you.

      So, how you answer is up to your conscience and how much risk you are willing to take.

      Sorry, I couldn’t help more

    Like an earlier traveler post, we are arriving in Lima simply to change planes and continue on our journey. Quito, Ecuador to Santiago, Chile. We will not be leaving the airport. Three quick questions. First,  any  further update or advice on how to fill out the form when we are simply transiting through the airport? Second, I assume the addresses previously given are for the airport in Lima? Third, we are US citizens, but since the flight through Lima originates in Ecuador, do we show country of origin as Ecuador or the United  States? Thanks  very much.

      @Jeff Shrader
      Hello Jeff,

      1. No, I still don't know if passengers in transit really have to fill in the form; it's not mentioned anywhere and just doesn't make sense. And at least at the Lima airport the Ministry of Health, as far as I know, only checks the health declaration shortly before immigration and passengers in transit don't end up there. However, usually the airlines flying you to Peru check if all passengers have the health declaration at check-in; so, it might be easier to just fill it in. Or ask your airline (and please let me know their answer)

      2. Yes, the address departmento "Callao" (it's at the bottom of the scroll down menu under Tumbes!), province "Callao", distrito "Callao", and street "Av. Elmer Faucett s/n" is the address of Jorge Chavez International Airport.

      3. You should choose here the country where you board the plane, so in your case Ecuador.

    Hi Again,
    When entering your personal info, it asks for your last name in two boxes and then your first name but not your middle name. Do I enter my last name twice or do I use one of the last name boxes for my middle name, and if so, which one. I know I am making more of this than I should but want to be sure to get it correct. 
    Thanks, Blaise

      @Jacques Blaise deSibour
      The Peruvian names consist of first name(s), father's surname (apellido paterno) and mother's surname (apellido materno); therfore you have two fields for last name.

      You have to put in the field First Name all your first names as in your passport. If you only have one surname just fill in the one field and leave the other open (the second isn't obligatory); if you have two surnames then fill in both fields. The names have to be exactly as in your passport, check for spelling mistakes.

      @Nic
      Hello Nic,

      I can't answer your question. I checked all the resolutions and decrees regarding the health declaration and nowhere found anything about passengers in transit, just things like "arriving" in Peru or "entering" Peru.

      However, as airlines flying to Peru already ask for the Peruvian Affidavit of Health when checking in, I personally would just fill it out to avoid any problems or unnecessary discussions / delays. Where you have to fill in your destination / address in Peru on the form  I would enter the address of the airport; so, departmento "Callao" (it's at the bottom of the scroll down menu under Tumbes), province "Callao", distrito "Callao", and street "Av. Elmer Faucett s/n".

      Or just check with the airline. They should know.

      Greetings

      @David Shadbolt Hello David,

      you are filling in the health declaration for Peru, so no need to indicate once more Peru. You are asked to choose the "destination department" . That's probably a bad translation, meant is the "departmento de destino" which is the Peruvian state you are traveling to.

      So, if you are traveling to the city of Lima, the departmento (so the destination department) is Lima, if you are traveling to Machu Picchu it's Cusco, if you are travel to the city of Trujillo it's La Libertad, if you are traveling to the city of Iquitos it's Loreto, if you are traveling to the city of Arequipa the departmento is as well Arequipa, etc.

      It seems to me that you have a translation program running either in the background automatically by your browser or intentionally. So all the departmentos are now translated into English (for example La Libertad is on your screenshot Freedom).

      Switch it off and you will get the correct names of Peru's departments; see screenshot I just made.

      Hello Melissa,

      yes the earliest you can fill out the form is 72 hours before you arrive in Peru. So, if your flight only lands in Peru for example on January 9 at 10pm then we still have a few hours until you are able to complete the form. So probably just wait until tomorrow and try again; then you shouldn't have a problem anymore.

      Hello Claudia,

      as you are the second person with this problem in a week, I just tried to fill out the form and had no problems. I have no idea what's wrong. The fields for the accompanying person aren't obligatory, so if you don't fill them in, you shouldn't get any error messages.

      My tips: reload the page, use another browser, fill in the form in Spanish (so don't switch to the English version), switch off the VPN, if you are using one, and as well any translation program that you might use or that might run in the background. Then you shouldn't have a problem.

      If it's still not working another option is to just put an "x" in the space and see what happens.

      Sorry, I couldn't help more. Let me know, if you can get the declaration and please share your experience so others know how to handle this problem.

      Thanks a lot

      Hello Esmeralda,

      as described above and just below for Shannon, who has the same problem, the (cell) phone number has to be entered in the way Peru writes its phone numbers. So, if necessary, you might have to split up your (cell) phone number(s) to fit the Peruvian-style 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.

      As this is the second comment about problems with entering the phone numbers within an hour I just tried it out and it worked without a problem. So, if you follow above tips, the system will accept your phone number.

      @Ethan
      Hello Ethan,

      For months everyone wanting to enter Peru had to present a negative PCR test result no matter if vaccinated or not. However since November 1, 2021 Peru requires an official vaccination certificate from everyone older than 12 years entering the country, proving that they are fully vaccinated against Covid-19 at least 14 days before arrival. Those not vaccinated must present a negative real-time COVID-19 molecular (RT-PCR) test result that is not older than 72 hours after being issued and before boarding the plane.

      See current Supreme Decree 179-2021-PCM, article 8.7 "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 el haber completado, en el Perú y/o el extranjero, su esquema de vacunación contra la COVID-19, catorce (14) días antes de abordar en su punto de origen; en su defecto, pueden presentar una prueba molecular negativa con fecha de resultado no mayor a 72 horas antes de abordar en su punto de origen."

      So, it seems to me that the information on VeriFly, which I personally never heard of before, is outdated. However, please check as well with your airline. Some of them might require a negative test despite your vaccination status.

      Happy Holidays
      Eva

      Hello Amy,

      in your case answering the question on the Health Declaration if you had contact with any person ill from Covid, depends on your honesty (be aware that you declare under oath that the information provided by you is correct) .

      However, if you check "yes" you have to live with possible consequences: the airline might not allow you to fly despite your negative test result and even if you make it to Peru you might be put into quarantine upon arrival; or no-one checks your health declaration properly and you can just enter the country without anyone bothering you.

      If you lie and check "no", neither the airline nor the health officials at the airport can prove otherwise, if you arrive in Peru healthy and with a negative PCR test result.

      So, how you answer is up to your conscience.

      @Ethan The US does require international travelers to be fully vaccinated. Peru does not require it, but if you are not, you need a PCR test. That's what I know. Verifly is connected with American Airlines. They expect you to be vaccinated if you're an international traveler and a foreigner. I don't know if this required of American citizen.

      Make sure you are not using a “VPN” and fill out all the required fields correctly as described above. Also note that the date in Peru is entered this way: dd/mm/yyyy. To further assist you, it will be necessary to know the error message you see.
