Citizens from most countries in the Americas and Western Europe do not require visas to enter Peru. Bolivians, Ecuadorians, Brazilians, and Chileans may enter determined regions of the country just by presenting their national identification documents. The maximum authorized length of stay is 90 days. Information on Peruvian consulates and embassies abroad can be found at

Important information: It is very important to keep the migration paper (Tarjeta Andina de Migracion), that you receive at the border, until you cross the border again to go back to your home country. Preferably, keep this paper safe together with your passport. All the hotels where you will be staying at make copies of this small document, and upon return you have to show this document at the border in order to leave the country. Therefore, we strongly advise you not to lose it. (See also image).


The official languages in Peru are Spanish (80% of the population), Quechua (Andean and highland regions), and Aymara (in the Puno high plateau). In addition, there are around 50 native languages. Most people who work in tourism or provide tourist services speak English.


In general, most outlets in Peru use 220 volts. Most 4 and 5-star hotels have outlets equipped for 110 volts. Most outlets use two types of plugs, which are shown below.


To avoid altitude sickness or soroche, we suggest following the steps:

Do not exercise too much on the first day in high altitude areas
Eat lightly during the first two days.
Drink plenty of water and high energy drinks.
If you have any heart, respiratory or pulmonary problems, please consult your doctor
We highly recommend drinking lots of coca tea. The consumption of coca tea, as well as chewing the leaves, increases the absorption of oxygen in the blood.
