Peru Has Opened For International Arrivals With A Negative Covid-19 Test

Peru has reopened its airports for international arrivals from nearby countries for passengers with a negative Covid-19 test administered no more than 72 hours before departure.

Passengers must also complete an “Affidavit of Health and Geolocation Authorization” on the immigration website 72 hours before departure.

You can access the website to file the self-declaration here.

  • Asuncion (ASU)
  • Bogota (BOG)
  • Cali (CLO)
  • Guayaquil (GYE)
  • La Paz (LPB)
  • Medellin (MDE)
  • Montevideo (MVE)
  • Panama (PTY)
  • Quito (U10)
  • Santa Cruz (VVI)
  • Santiago (SCL)

Coronavirus in Peru:

More than 0.1% of Peruvians living in the country have so far died of Covid-19, and it seems that the country is currently experiencing a slowing second wave.


Brazil, Bolivia, Ecuador, Colombia, and now Peru in South America have opened their borders for international visitors. I guess that it shouldn’t be too long before Chile and Argentina are open as well.

Peru should be on its way to herd immunity even before the vaccine is out considering the number of deaths the country has experienced due to Covid-19.

I have been to Peru four/five times and thrice in Cusco, but haven’t been to the Machu Picchu yet. I had the train ticket to go up on my first trip but got altitude sickness and felt too terrible to move (slept in). Perhaps another visit in due course is in order?
