Dear Customers,

Please find below the latest updates and policies pertaining to the COVID-19 restrictions that have been imposed by the Government of Peru. Please be mindful of these before considering your need to travel, as various restrictions may impact your movement and activities.

As a reminder, when out in public, you must wear a double mask when entering crowded establishments, such as shopping centres, supermarkets, and pharmacies, and while not mandatory, for your safety and the safety of those around you, it is highly encouraged that you also wear a face shield. No matter if you are a local, a resident foreigner, or a non-resident foreigner, when entering Peru, you must have returned a negative COVID result no more than 72 hours before entry.

Please note: As it currently stands, non-resident foreigners from South Africa and those who have stopped over in the country in the past 14 days, are not allowed to enter Peru for the time-being.

All provinces of Peru have now been classified as having a Moderate Alert Level. What this means is that certain capacity limits have been assigned to various establishments, as well as a mandated curfew between the hours of 01.00am and 4.00am, with commercial premises having to close no later than 12.00am.


Please make note of the following capacity limits:

Not allowed: Large events, traditional festivals, and carnivals.

20% limit: Coliseums (however, the attendees must be double-vaccinated)

50% limit: Temples, places of worship, casinos, gyms, cinemas, shopping centres, general stores, gyms and galleries

60% limit: Sports club activities, banks, financial institutions, business events, saunas, Turkish baths, barber shops, hairdressers, libraries, museums, supermarkets, warehouses, indoor restaurants and pharmacies

Allowed without restrictions: Open spaces that include sports, club activities, zoos, botanical gardens, outdoor theatre and outdoor restaurants (such as beer gardens), and for those that are double-vaccinated, sports stadium attendances (to a 20% capacity limit)
