Getting To Peru After COVID-19
As Peru reopens, new tourism regulations and protocols are put in place for visiting your favorite places. International flights to the country have been open since October 1st, and hygiene protocols are set in place to ensure a safe trip to the country’s most desired destinations. We’ll walk you through the process from Lima’s Jorge Chavez International Airport to Iquitos, where you can live your Amazonian adventure safely!
Testing Guidelines for International Guests
New international travel guidelines to enter Peru are in flux, currently requiring that inbound international passengers on commercial flights have either a negative real-time COVID-19 molecular (RT-PCR), negative antigen test result, or a medical certificate of epidemiological discharge that is no more than 72 hours old after being issued, before boarding the plane.Children under the age of 12 can present a certificate of health issued by a medical doctor in lieu of a negative test.
All passengers must also complete an affidavit of health (found here: https://e-notificacion.migraciones.gob.pe/dj-salud/). These requirements may change, so we advise you to contact your airline days prior your flight to gather the proper documentation and regularly consult the airport website for the latest guidance:
