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 October 3, 2021.
Areas of Peru that are classed as having a Moderate Alert level include the main tourist destinations such as Lima, Cusco, Arequipa and Puno. 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.
We wish you all the best. Stay safe, and get vaccinated.
