Peru is open, and so are our arms!
Here's everything you need to know about travelling here these days.
LAST UPDATED: August 10, 2022
1. Getting to Peru
If you are 12 or more years old, you need to be vaccinated to take a trip to Peru. Showing your vaccination certificate 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 treatment 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 a face mask in enclosed areas such as planes, banks, and government offices (it’s up to you to provide these, though of course we’ll have a few spares.)
Some sites we visit have further specific requirements. Your guide will keep you fully informed of these.

3. Getting home
To board your flight out of Peru you’ll need two face masks (that’s right, two at the same time)
