We have an update about COVID-19 travel restrictions in Peru.
The Government has issued an alert stating that the use of masks is mandatory while out in public, while strongly encouraging the use of a face shield. In crowded areas, one mask is not enough. You must wear two masks in order to enhance your protection against contracting the COVID-19 virus.
For locals, resident foreigners, and non-resident foreigners, you must have received a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of entering Peru. Those who test positive must undertake the mandated 14-day quarantine, and must return a negative COVID-19 test before leaving. As it stands, visitors from South Africa and visitors who have passed through South Africa, cannot enter the country until at least September 19, 2021.
Areas of Peru that are classed as having a High Alert level include Puno, Madre de Dios, Ayacucho and Amazonas. The following conditions have been placed upon them:
As it stands, large outdoor gatherings, including traditional festivals, carnivals, and big music events are not allowed. However, even under the classification of a High Alert level, public beaches can be used under the strict inspection and monitoring by the National Health Authority.
We wish you all the best. Stay safe, and get vaccinated.
