We hope you all stay safe during this period and as such, we are sharing the Government’s COVID-19 travel restrictions that may impact your travel plans. While it is strongly recommended that you wear a face shield—but is not mandatory—you must wear a double mask when out in public.
A High Alert level currently applies to the following regions of Peru:
Santa y Huaraz (Áncash), Arequipa, Camaná & Islay (Arequipa), Huamanga (Ayacucho), Cajamarca & Jaén (Cajamarca), Cusco, La Convención & Urubamba (Cusco), Huánuco & Leoncio Prado (Huánuco), Ica, Chincha, Pisco & Palpa (Ica), Huancayo, Satipo, Chanchamayo & Tarma (Junín), Chiclayo, Trujillo & Pacasmayo (La Libertad), Lambayeque & Ferreñafe (Lambayeque), Huaura, Barranca, Huaral, Huarochirí, Lima, Provincia Constitucional del Callao (Lima), Ilo & Mariscal Nieto (Moquegua), Piura, Talara, Paita, Sullana, Sechura, Morropón (Piura), & Tacna & Jorge Basadre (Tacna).
Your travel and social activities will be affected by the following capacity limits and restrictions:
At present, there are no capacity limits in open spaces, including dining at outdoor restaurants, attending outdoor thermal baths, attending outdoor sports events (such as football matches), national parks and zoos. However, if the events are very large in scale, such as a festival or carnival, then this is still not allowed.
Presentation of the vaccination card
Those over 18 years of age who wish to enter premises where economic and/or worship activities are carried out (required in all indoors commercial establishments), must present their physical or virtual certification card that proves to have completed, in Peru or abroad, their vaccination scheme against COVID-19.
A further update has been introduced by the Government, and that is that until at least January 30, 2022, flights containing non-resident foreigners from South Africa and Botswana are suspended. Peruvians and resident foreigners who have been in these countries must be double-vaccinated and be able to prove that they have returned a negative test within 48 hours of their flight.
All the best,
