Visa for digital nomads and freelancers in Peru

Peruvian Digital Nomad Visa

A Guide to Peruvian Visas

Part 9

On November 14, 2023, a new Foreigner Law, Decreto Legislativo 1582, was published introducing a resident visa for digital nomads, remote workers and freelancers in Peru for the first time.

This new Digital Nomad Visa allows foreigners, who work independently or employed for a company outside Peru using digital communication technologies and systems, to apply for and get a resident visa in Peru.

It’s important to mentioned that the Digital Nomad Visa does not allow foreigners to work for a Peruvian company in Peru or to have any income in Peru. The income must be generated abroad while living in Peru.

The Digital Nomad Visa is valid for up to one year and then can be extended.

As the corresponding administrative regulations haven’t been published yet, right now (November 24, 2023) we don’t know which requirements foreigners have to meet exactly and how the application process works.

As soon as there are any official news, we will update this article and explain the process in detail.

Those who already now want to read the exact wording of the legal text, check out Decreto Legislativo no. 1582, article 29.1i "Nomada Digital". Additionally, on the government website the new Digital nomad visa is introduced as well.
