Travel Permit (Permiso Especial de Viaje / Autorización de Estadía fuera del País - AEP)

Travel Permit (Permiso Especial de Viaje / Autorización de Estadía fuera del País - AEP)

Foreigners traveling outside Peru during the approval process of their visa or visa extension need a special authorization to leave the country

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
  • Passport
  • 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".

All administration charges, processing fees and fines government agencies, public authorities and entities levy in Peru have to be paid at the Banc...

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.

How to apply for the authorization to leave Peru while the approval of your visa application or extension is still in progress

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.

    I've been trying to apply for my travel permit but when I click on the tab under permisos for especial de viaje it only comes up with a 404 error de servidor. I've tried on different computers, incognito window, etc. But I also can't get a hold of migraciones by phone or chat or by appointments as none are available. My trip is in 72 hours and I'm on a time crunch. So I'm going to go to the office tomorrow and try to talk to someone. But can I print out the form that we found and do it physically? Or what else can I do to apply for the permit. I've been trying to access the platform for a week and I always get the server error.

      Hello 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.

    Hi, great advice on this page. I am applying for cambio de calidad migratoria for the first time. I have submitted all my documents and attended the biometrics appointment. I think that the next step is waiting for the notification that my application is in process and them providing me with a numero expediente. (Do I expect this on the Buzon de notificationes page?) I can't apply for the travel permit until I receive the numero expediente but I am due to fly out of Peru in a week. What if I receive the numero expediente after I have left the country but before I return?
    1) Will they cancel my application because by the time I return I will have a pending application but won't have a travel permit?
    2) If the application does get cancelled, at which point would I have to restart the process? Presumably just uploading all the documents to migraciones website again, and maybe attending another biometrics appointment?
    3) My trip out of Peru is meant to be for 35 days. I'm wondering if I need to book a flight back to Peru to split the journey into 2 parts. So that both are <30days. (Can you apply for 2 travel permits. But if I have left the country before receiving my application approval/numero expediente, and therefore cannot apply for the travel permit, does the 30 day still apply. Probably they would cancel my visa application when I returned (because of not having a travel permit) and therefore would be a waste to have booked a return flight in the middle of the trip.
     
    Sorry for the lengthy question, any advice much appreciated.

      @Alice Osmaston Hello Alice,

      Until mid-last year or so Migraciones sent a confirmation letter of your application with your no. de expediente and your log-in data for the buzon electronico. Then things changed and the number and login data were just displayed on your screen at the end of the application process. So, as you made an appointment for the biometrical data, you most probably already have your no. de expediente.

      Check out the picture I attached. After you uploaded your documents, you had the Registro de Solicitud de Cambio de Calidad Migratoria displayed. The no. de expediente has two letters (some sort of abbreviation of the Migraciones office where you applied; LM for Lima, for example; or CY for Chiclayo, etc.) and 9 numbers. For reasons of data protection of the person who thankfully sent me the screenshot, I had to hide the number under the red line.

      If you didn’t print or download this document, you can try and verify your application under this link https://sel.migraciones.gob.pe/servmig-inmtra/VerEstadoTramiteIMRev (for whatever reasons, the page won’t load at the moment, but, when I remember correctly, you can enter the page without your no. de expediente).

      Answer to 1)
      Yes, if you leave Peru without the travel permit while your application is still in process, your application will be canceled.

      Answer to 2)
      After your return, check if they canceled your application. If not, good for you. If they did, you just have to start from scratch. New payment, new application. Make sure your documents are still valid as documents in Peru have an “expiration date”. So, in general (there are a few exceptions, for example, work contract), documents issued in Peru are only accepted if they were issued not more than 3 months before the application is submitted; documents issued outside Peru are only accepted if they are not older than 6 months.

      Answer to 3)
      The travel permit is valid for a maximum of 30 days. And no, you can only apply for one travel permit at a time. If you return within the 30 days and immediately apply for another travel permit, it might be denied.

      Greetings

      Hello Alice,

      sorry for getting back to you so late. But I tried to find out where and how you get the codigo. Unfortunately, in vain.

      The usual way is, as explained on our visa pages, that during your application process you should download or print the PA form - Cambio de calidad migratoria. There on the bottom (under the signature and fingerprint field) you find the codigo and the login data for your buzon.

      If you haven't done this, I was told that you can use above link, enter with just your no. de expediente and can find the code there. I don't know what the error message means and how you can overcome this obstacle as you checked the field that you want to enter using your no. de expediente. Sorry.

      I'm still waiting for a reply from a friend of mine who may or not have an idea how you can retrieve the number. If he gets back to me with something new, I'll let you know.

      Other option, get in contact with Migraciones and ask how to proceed.

      Sorry.

    Hi, it was a little unclear in the article above, but do you need to buy your plane tickets and then apply for the travel permit? For example say I want to leave on Jan 25 but want to buy my tickets today, can I do that? How early can we apply for the travel permit before our departure date?

      Hello Mikayla,

      you can buy your plane ticket whenever you please. And I don't know of any cases where the travel permit wasn't approved.

      Migraciones recommends applying for the travel permit at least 2 to 3 days before you are planning to leave the country. They don't say what's the earliest you can apply.

      I think a week or so before you leave is fine, because much earlier doesn't make sense as your application process could be approved by then and you then won't need the permit anymore.

    Update:  I received the notification letter from Migraciones that my change of migratory status (rentista visa) has been approved.  Since this is my first time having a CE, I need to go to have my biometrics taken for the card (photo, etc.), however, I am unable to schedule an appointment for this procedure until end of January.  

    I need to leave Peru in a few weeks for Christmas (will be gone <30 days).  Do I still need to request the special travel permission or since my resident visa applicaiton is no longer in review and has been approved, can I just show the immigration officer at the airport a copy of said letter? 

    Alternatively, is it possibly to simply show up at the biometrical office w/out an appointment as so long as I bring this approval letter?  Of course, the Agencia Digital portal won't let you modify your cita fecha online (not to mention there are zero available appointments in December to begin with).  What do you think?

      @John Hello John,

      As the process for getting your residence visa and carné isn’t completed and you still don’t have your carné, yes you have to get the travel permit to leave the country which is only valid for a max of 30 days. And no, I doubt that the immigration officer is happy with just the approval letter as you must show your carné together with your passport when leaving Peru.

      So, you haven’t made the biometric appointment right after your application? Hmm … at least in Lima you can’t just show up at Migraciones to get your biometrical data taken. They won’t let you enter without an appointment. If you are in the provinces, you might have a chance, but there you can get an appointment at some Migraciones offices in a few days anyway.

      @Sunflower I made the biometric appointment before my visa application was approved (and even then only appointments towards the very end of January were available in Lima on the digital platform).  

      However, now that my visa has been approved do I have any sort of privileges or priority to "fast track" or expedite my biometric appointment any sooner?  

      It seems you should be allowed to get your biometics done earlier once you have been approved by the government.

      Also, my legal status as a 90 day tourist is frozen in time until I actually pick up the physical carne card and close out the entire process, correct?

      Sorry John, no privileges. You have your appointment and that's it.

      And yes, your tourist status is as you said "frozen", even though now you aren't a tourist anymore as your residence visa is approved. But you still need your carné to finish the process.

      All the best

    Hello, I am trying to request the special permit to travel in the Migraciones Agencia virtual portal and it is asking for these three specific pieces of information in order to proceed:

    -numero expediente 
    -fecha de publicacion
    -codigo de verificacion

    I was under the impression that you can pay the fee on pagalo.pe and then simply enter the corresponding info from the "constancia de pago de tasas" (banc de la nacion receipt that has all the payment confirmation data) but the information Migraciones Agencia is asking for seems different.  Did something change?  I don't see the verbiage "numero expediente" "fecha de publicacion" or "codigo de verificacion" anywhere on the standard pagalo payment receipt.  Are we talking about the same thing?

      Hello John,

      the travel permit is needed when you have or want to leave Peru while your visa application or extension is still in process.

      The numero de expediente etc. don't have anything to do with your pagalo / bank receipt. That's the file number and date of your visa application. So, you should check on the confirmation of your application to find the necessary information.

      Hello John,

      I never heard that you have to fill in a "codigo de verificación". Unfortunately, I don't have access to this part of the Agencia, so never have seen the fields you have to fill in and can't check myself.

      Is this codigo part of the information you have to enter from bank receipt? Or is somewhere on your application confirmation another code that might belong there? Or have to tried to leave it blank (this works, for example, when you have to fill in the questionnaire and are asked for a codigo preregistro?

      Sorry, I really don't know.

      The verification code is an autogenerated code that should be on the bottom of a tramite along with the fecha de publication. The site where you can verify the status of your tramite is: https://sel.migraciones.gob.pe/servmig-inmtra/VerEstadoTramiteIMRev


      So I've been told that my tourist visa time is paused while waiting for the processing of a visa. Is there an official certificate or declaration that I can carry with me to show any authorities that might ask why I'm here past the date stamped in my passport?

      Does the time pause the date of submission of the visa application, or at 0? For example, if I have 5 days left on the tourist visa, does it just freeze at 5 until there is a result for the visa? Or does it count down to 0 then I am in some kind of "waiting" status until the result is given?

      @AB
      Hello AB,

      Great info again regarding the verification code. Thanks for sharing.

      At least until a few months ago, you got a confirmation letter of your application and that was sufficient if you had to prove that you are legal in the country. Now, in case you need it, you can just open the link that you provided showing that you applied for your visa and are still waiting for the approval.

      And on the day you apply for your visa, time stops and, as far as I know, your status as tourist is on hold and the remaining days are canceled. If your visa is approved you are in Peru on your temporary or residence visa, if it denied you usually get 15 days to leave the country.

      As most people apply for a residence visa, it's not important for them if the remaining days on their tourist visa are carried forward. And assuming that you get at least 90 days when you apply for a temporary student visa plus the days you already stayed as a tourist plus the processing time, you end up in a new 180-day period anyway.

      yes, no problem to apply a week before your travel, so you have peace of mind.

      The reason why Migraciones gives this recommendation is that people apply a day or even an hour before they leave and then wonder why their application isn't processed in time.

      @Kat Hello Kat,

      Thank you for your nice words. Always great to hear that the info here on LimaEasy is helpful.

      If you have a work contract with a duration of at least 12 months, you get a resident work visa (trabajador dependiente) which is valid for one year and then can be extended.

      If you have a work contract with a duration of less than 12 months, you get a temporary work visa, which usually is valid only for the duration of the contract. So, in case you have a trial contract with a duration of three months, the temporary work visa usually is issued only for these three months. It can be extended or, if after the trial period you get a work contract with a duration of 12 months or more, you can apply for a resident work visa.

      Not sure what your second question is (the rest of your message seems to be “compromised” and was automatically blocked by our system).

      So, if you have more questions, please get back to me or check out our Work Visa article where you find lots of general information about the different work visas, requirements, and a step-by-step guide on how to apply.

    I'm thinking about visiting home for Christmas.  Having timed everything out, I believe my visa application will be processed around Christmas time; I don't think I'll have my visa before then.  So, two questions:

    1) In theory, as far as we know, is it possible to be given the "Autorizacion por estadia afuera" wanting to leave the country for almost any reason?  Or does it need to be something like a sudden illness or family problem?
    2) Again, in theory, is it possible to be denied the authorization / permission to leave the country, in which case it's risky to buy a ticket hoping that I'll indeed be allowed to leave the country?

      @Michael Hello Michael,

      Peru has different subtypes of the “Autorización de Estadía fuera del País” with slightly different requirements. If your resident visa application is still in process, and you need or want to leave the country, you have to apply for the travel permit that allows you to be outside Peru for a maximum of 30 days.

      In this case, according to the current regulation Supreme Decree 002-2021-IN (page 21, article 67.2.1) and the current TUPA (page 25) you only have to apply for the authorization before (!) leaving the country, pay the fee, have a valid passport and travel ticket showing your travel dates. You usually do not have to give a reason for your travels.

      2) In theory, yes, Migraciones could deny your authorization to leave the country (as they could deny your resident visa application; or could at any time ask for other documents). But in practice, I never heard that anyone who applied properly for the Autorización de estadía fuera del país because his resident visa application was still in process, was denied.

      @Emanuele Hello Emanuele,

      Things change constantly, but as far as I know, you should have gotten a confirmation with a tramite number. In my opinion, you now have three options:

      If you aren’t under time pressure, wait a day or two and see if they send you the travel permit.

      Or, which most probably is the better option, get in contact with Migraciones (phone 200-1000 or use the chat on the Agencia Digital) and ask if your application went through or not. If yes, great, just wait. If not, you have to pay and apply again. but can request a refund of your first payment later.

      Or, if you don’t have enough time anymore before leaving or can’t reach Migraciones, pay the fee again, wait a few hours until the payment is processed and then apply for the permit again. As above, if the first application didn’t go through, you can request a refund of your first payment. If it went through, you might end up with two travel permits which you both have to pay.

      And no, you have to apply for the travel permit on the Agencia Digital, no other way. Sorry.

      @Victor Hello Victor,

      Did I understand correctly that you entered as a tourist, were given 60 days and then within the 60 days applied for a temporary or resident student visa (officially you applied for a cambio de caldidad migratoria)?

      If so, you don’t have to worry. On the day you applied on the Agencia Digital for your student visa and received the confirmation of your application, time stops, the days aren’t counted further, and even though you are in the country longer than the 60 days you got, you are legally in Peru until your visa application is either approved or denied. So, when you leave you are not late, your visa application is just still in process.

      And exactly in these cases, so when the approval of your temporary or resident student visa is still in process but you have to leave Peru, you need to apply for this Travel Permit otherwise your visa application is null and void.

      So, in case by October 7 or so your visa still wasn’t approved, yes, you should apply for the travel permit, so you can leave for the three weeks without losing any progress on your application.

      @Dario Hello Dario,

      you only get the travel permit, if you applied for the extension of your resident visa or for a new carné (two different things!) and your application is in process, but you need to travel during the processing time. So, if your visa/carné is expired, you applied for an extension and are waiting for the approval, only then can you apply for the travel permit to leave the country.

      If you haven't applied for an extension yet and your resident visa or carné is expired, you can leave Peru. However, you will lose your residency and you might be asked to pay a fine for not extending your residency on time; in 2022, the fine is S/ 46 per day since your residency expired.

      In case your residency is expired for some time, then it's getting really expensive. So, personally, I would contact Migraciones and see if there are any options to leave the country without paying or to try arranging a deal.

      Hello Hatim,

      I don't really understand your question. Do you have to leave Peru during the processing time of your resident visa application or the extension of your resident visa?

      If you are already a resident and are in the process of getting the extension, then you still have your valid carné and can additionally to the travel permit, if necessary, show a copy of your tramite. This should be sufficient to be let on the plane.

      If you are in the process of applying for a resident visa for the first time, you actually have nothing to show except the travel permit and your tramite. So, while I highly advise against leaving the country during that time, I don't know what the airline will make of it. Personally, I think the travel permit should be enough, but to make sure I would ask the airline you are flying back to Peru what you have to expect when checking in and if the document is enough to board the plane. Re-entering Peru surely isn't a problem.

      And no, you can't apply for another visa while applying for a resident visa.

      Greetings
      Eva

      @Sunflower Thank you Eva!

      Yes I am in the process of applying for a resident visa for the first time. I have to leave Peru for an emergency in my country. I would have preferred not to as you mentioned... But I need to leave. I'm coming back after 28 days so that should be fine to re-enter here with the permit. My question was if the permit is accepted as a valid document to board the plane when I'm coming back, just like a visa would be.

      @Hatim This is a question you should ask the airline, as they are the only ones who can answer it according to their policies. I personally think (!!!), yes the travel permit should be enough, but who knows. Better have something in writing from the airline so in case they give you trouble when you are checking in just with your travel permit, you can show something from the airline as well.
