- This commment is unpublished.· 22/01/2023@MikaylaHello Mikayla,I was updating this article yesterday and had no problem when I clicked on the permiso de viaje point. However, today, when I wanted to double check something, I got the same 404 error message you describe. As sometimes official websites have their flaws and seemingly only work properly during business hours and today is Sunday, I didn't think much about it, but still checked if Migraciones probably changed the application process for the travel authorization. But no, that's the way you must apply and since August 2021, the only way you can apply.Not sure where you are, but be aware that you will have a hard time to speak to someone at Migraciones in Lima if you don't have an appointment (which are booked for weeks at the moment). Best try to apply again tomorrow morning after 09.00 am. Switch of any translation program and/or VPN and/or ad blockers you may be using. If you still get the same error message, you could try to call Migraciones under 200-1000. If you go to Migraciones make a screenshot of the error message on the Agenica to have some proof when the security guard at the entrance wants to send you away. Additionally, take your passport, flight ticket, payment receipt and no. de expediente with you. Migraciones offices in the provinces are usually more welcoming.Wishing you all the best.GreetingsEva
Foreigners in Peru who applied for a visa - to be precise who applied for a change of their immigration status (cambio de calidad migratoria) or a change of their visa type (cambio de clase de visa) - as well as those who applied for an extension of their residence visa can only leave the country during the processing time of their application with a special travel permit, the so called Permiso especial de viaje, officially as well known as Autorización de estadía fuera del país.
While for years those that had to or wanted to travel outside Peru during the processing time of their application had to pay the Migraciones office a visit to apply for the permit in person before their travel, in March 2018 the application process was simplified and now can be easily done online.
Requirements for the application of the Travel permit
- Form PA - Autorizaciones y Permisos
- Receipt for paid application fee (S/ 29.90 in 2023; code Migraciones 07562; concept Autorizacion por estadia afuera del pais por treinta (30) dias para quienes se encuentren realizando un cambio o tramite de prorroga de calidad migratoria)
- The approval of your visa application or extension of your resident visa is in process when you want to travel
Be aware that you must apply for the Travel permit before (!!!) leaving the country, otherwise your application is null and void. Migraciones recommends applying 48 - 72h before you travel outside the Peru.
How to apply for the Travel permit
To apply for the permit, first pay the fee of S/ 29.90 for the Migraciones administrative procedure "Formulario PA-Autoriz./Permisos y control migratorio" under code 07562 with "Concepto": Autorizacion por estadia afuera del pais por treinta (30) dias para quienes se encuentren realizando un cambio o tramite de prorroga de calidad migratoria on pagalo.pe or at any Banco de la Nacion branch.
As you already paid the fees for your visa application or extension, you know how the systems works, otherwise check again in our article "Paying administration charges and processing fees in Peru".
Then open the Migraciones Agencia Virtual. Choose "Extranjero" and enter the data requested. On the next page in the menu on the left you find under "Permisos" the point "Especial de viaje". Click on it.
Then just follow the steps as indicated; nothing you can do wrong. Always check that all personal data you entered (or was automatically filled in) is 100% correct.
First enter the type of application, for example, cambio de calidad migratoria, then the file number of your application (consists of 2 letters and 9 numbers) and the application date.
Next, you have to enter a verification code. This code is at the bottom of the Form PA - Cambio de Calidad Migratoria, which was displayed on your screen at the end of your visa application. If you didn't download or print it, you can verify the status of your application here by entering the page just with your file number and find the code on the next page.
Then just fill in your e-mail address and the displayed code and click on Siguiente.
On the next page all requirements are listed. Click on the little arrows next to each requirement, and certain fields appear depending on the requirement. Just fill in the fields as requested and upload the corresponding document (for example, PDF of your passport (page with your personal data); PDF of your bank receipt; possibly PDF of your flight ticket). Under “Pago por derecho de tramite” you are asked to enter certain information of the bank receipt. If you don't know where to find the requested bank information on your receipt, click on the question mark.
At the end of the process you get a confirmation of your application. Download this document and/or print it; keep it safe.
The Travel permit is usually sent to you within 48h.
The Permiso especial de viaje / Autorización de estadía fuera del país is only good for one exit and one re-entry. It is valid for 30 days counted from the departure date you indicated and can’t be extended. If you stay outside the country longer, the application of your visa or visa extension is canceled.
