A new deadline to obtain the Temporary Residency Permit has been set for June 30, 2019, according to the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Pedro Pablo Kuczynski.
After the supreme decree of the Ministry of Internal Affairs (Mininter) regarding the guidelines for the Temporary Residency Permit (Permiso de Residencia Temporal, PTP) for Venezuelans was approved in January 2017, more than 8,000 people holding this nationality have since entered the country every month.
This data comes from information gathered by the National Superintendence of Migrations in Peru.
In fact, a deadline to apply for the Temporary Residency Permit was set for today for those Venezuelans that entered Peru before July 31, 2017. This will allow them to normalize their migratory status, informed the National Superintendence of Migrations to America TV last week.
Nevertheless, President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski‘s (PPK) government established that the PTP will be valid for a year, and the new deadline to obtain this permit is set for June 30, 2019, according to a subscribed norm by the Ministry of Internal Affairs, Vicente Romero, and PPK himself.
To obtain the PTP permit, Venezuelans need to have entered the country regularly before July 31, 2017; not have a criminal record nationally or internationally; and they must be in an irregular migratory situation because of the expiration of their residence permit, or other causes.
The applications for the PTP will be resolved only by the Zonal Headquarters that corresponds, or by the Migrations Migratory Services Management, accordingly.
