Business Visa for Peru

Business Visa for Peru

A Guide to Peruvian Visas

Part 4

Nationals of some countries travelling for a short duration to Peru for business related reasons that do not require actual labor work or receiving payment (such as engaging in any sort of international business activities, signing of business contracts or agreements, business related financial transactions) have to apply for a business visa at a Peruvian consulate before entering the country.

Please check below attached PDF "Visas for Peru by country and allowed length of stay" to find out if you have to apply for a business visa when coming to Peru for business related reasons or not.

The Peruvian business visa is a multiple entry visa and entitles its holder to enter Peru within a time period of usually 6 or 12 months from the date of issue. The maximum stay on a business visa is 180 days within a 365-day period, but the consulates abroad reserve the right to grant visas for shorter stays. Peruvian business visas can't be extended.

The business visa can only be applied for at a Peruvian consulate before entering the country.

Visa requirements for a Peruvian business visa include, but may not be restricted to:

  • Application Form
  • Receipt for paid application fee
  • Passport photos
  • Valid Passport with copy
  • Round-Trip Ticket
  • Letter from the company sponsoring the business trip, showing the purpose of the visit to Peru, length of the stay, and assurance that the business person is travelling with sufficient funds to last the duration of the trip
  • Proof of legal residency in the area or country under the consulates jurisdiction

Best get in contact with a Peruvian consulate for detailed information on the application process and exact requirements.

!!! As visa and entry regulations can change quickly without prior notice, we highly recommend confirming current visa requirements with the nearest Peruvian consulate !!!

      @Manoj Hello Manoj,

      Even though the consulate might have issued a business visa with a validity of 180 days, it’s always at the discretion of the border official when you enter how many days, he allows you to stay in the country. At the moment it seems, everyone is only getting 90 days.

      As far as I know since last year you can’t extend a business visa in Peru. But I might be wrong, so checking with Migraciones (best use the chat on the Agencia Digital, or write an e-mail to informes @ migraciones . gob . pe, or try to call their hotline 200-1000) is probably the best way to get a 100% correct answer and instructions on how to proceed.

      As Peruvian business visas are multiple entry visas, you always have the option to leave the country and return if it’s not possible to extend.

      Greetings
      Eva
