Recommendations for travelers in Peru
Traveling through Peru is a wonderful experience, full of amazing landscapes, culture, nature and an incomparable gastronomy. Therefore, in this COVID-19 pandemic, we think this information and recommendations are important for you:
PROTOCOLS IN PERU
Peru was awarded the label WTTC “Safe Travels”, which recognizes the following tourist destinations for safety and hygiene against the COVID-19: Cusco (the city of Cusco, the citadel of Machu Picchu and the Sacred Valley), Iquitos (the Amazon River and Pacaya Samiria National Reserve), Amazonas (Kuelap), Ayacucho (region), Lima (District of Miraflores) and beaches in Piura (Mancora, Cabo Blanco, Vichayito, Los Organos, etc.).
Travelers entering the country must fill out a sworn statement (link) and provide it before boarding the plane, as well as a negative molecular test (PCR), or a negative antigen test or a medical certificate of epidemiological discharge. The results must be obtained no later than 72 hours prior to check-in.
The quarantine is removed for travelers entering Peru, with the exception of residents from South Africa, Brazil and/or India, or who have made a stopover in such countries. They must undergo mandatory quarantine at home, in an accommodation or other isolation center for 14 days upon arrival in Peru.
The use of mask is mandatory. In addition, for entering shopping centers, galleries, department stores or for the supply of commodities, supermarkets, markets and stores, it is imperative to wear two masks.
At airports and some clinics, the use of face shields, in addition to masks, is also mandatory. Furthermore, their use is recommended in closed places such as pharmacies, restaurants or other crowded places.
The Ministry of Health provides information on laboratories that perform molecular tests for the diagnosis of COVID-19 nationwide at the following link http://bit.ly/LaboratoriosCOVID-19Peru. The update on these centers will be published on this website, so that tour operators and travelers can access.
