Travelers to Peru should ensure that the validity of their passports extends at least six months beyond the end of their intended stay, and should have at least one blank (unstamped) visa pages in their passport to enter the country. The last two amendment pages are unacceptable for visas and immigration stamps.
US citizens do not need a visa for a stay of less than 30 days in Peru.
Please be sure check the CDC Website for Peru for updated information about vaccinations and health concerns, and check with your medical provider or travel clinic about your individual requirements.
In addition to being up-to-date on routine vaccinations 4-6 weeks before travel, the CDC recommends that most travelers be vaccinated for Hepatitis A and Typhoid. The CDC also recommends some travelers to be vaccinated for Hepatitis B and Rabies.
*Yellow Fever and Malaria: While these diseases are present in parts of Peru, we will not be traveling to these areas on this trip. The CDC does not recommend Yellow Fever and Malaria immunizations for Lima and locations above a certain elevate threshold ( Yellow fever: above 2,300 m (7,546 ft); Malaria: above 2,000 m (6,561 ft))
Zika is present in Peru. Because of the risk of birth defects in babies born to women who were infected with Zika while pregnant, women who are pregnant or planning to become pregnant should discuss their travel plans with their doctor and consider postponing nonessential travel to Peru. Travelers to Peru should strictly follow steps to prevent mosquito bites and sexual exposure to Zika virus.
