Peru is open, and so are our arms!
Here's everything you need to know about travelling here these days.
1. Getting to Peru
You need to make sure your travel insurance covers illness, treatment and quarantine costs, and trip interruption due to COVID-19.
These are the three things you need to board a flight to Peru:
1. A negative molecular (such as PCR) test result, issued no more than 72 hours before your flight out of home departs
(Or people under 12 years old can bring a medical certificate stating they don’t have Covid symptoms instead, if preferred)
2. Two face masks (that’s right, two at the same time!)
3. Last but not least, the Peruvian government’s Health and Geolocation online statement:
Follow the link to complete this form 72 hours before departure, print it and bring a copy with you.
2. During your time in Peru with Aspiring Adventures
Once you’re on the ground, restrictions vary by province. Each province is deemed extreme, very high, high or moderate risk of contagion, and these different risk levels have different restrictions. Risk levels per province are re-evaluated every three weeks.
For the current period (October 4 to 17), everywhere we go is Moderate.
Restrictions in these places in this period
Night-time curfew: from 1am till 4am…. not likely to affect your trip much!
Capacity restrictions at Machu Picchu: Access to Huayna Picchu and Machu Picchu (extra climbs we include in some trips) is still closed. Otherwise Machu Picchu is back to normal capacity.
3. Getting home
1. To fly into most countries, you need a negative COVID test result, issued no more than three days before you fly. We will organize this for all of our guests who require it, incorporating it into the last three days of your trip. The cost of the test will fall to you. Test costs have varied a lot over the course of the pandemic but as of right now, you’re looking at $50 for the rapid test (which is all that is required for the USA) or $150 for the molecular or PCR test.
Again, if you test positive you’ll be required to complete a 14 day quarantine in Peru.
2. To board your flight out of Peru you’ll need two face masks (that’s right, two at the same time)
The last word:
All of this is simpler than it sounds, and we’ve been through it many times.
