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 183 days within a 365 days period, but the consulates abroad reserve the right to grant visas for shorter stays. Peruvian business visa can't be extended.
