Peru is open, and so are our arms!
Here's everything you need to know about travelling here these days.
LAST UPDATED: January 12, 2021
1. Getting to Peru
You need to be vaccinated to take a trip to Peru. Though showing your vaccination certificate is not required to board a flight to Peru (you can show a PCR test result instead), it IS required to take a flight WITHIN Peru, or board a train, or enter any closed area (such as restaurants, stores and museums)… in general, to do the things you are coming here to do.
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. Proof of vaccination (all doses completed at least 14 days before you leave for Peru)
Technically you can board a flight to Peru showing a a negative molecular (such as rapid or real time PCR) test result, issued no more than 72 hours before your flight out of home departs, instead, BUT as mentioned above there is no point coming to Peru right now unless you are vaccinated.
(People under 12 years old can travel to and within Peru freely as long as they are asymptomatic.)
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 (or you can show the PDF on your phone).
2. During your time in Peru with Aspiring Adventures
You must wear one face mask at all times in public, and two face masks when in certain enclosed spaces such airports.
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 (January 6 to 16), everywhere we go is High risk which means a night-time curfew from 11pm till 4am is in place
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.
