Starting on June 15, 2019, Peru will require a humanitarian visa, in addition to the passport, to all Venezuelan citizens who wish to enter the country.
“By the end of last April, the National Migration Superintendence had counted 750,000 Venezuelans in Peru, unlike in 2016, when only 8,160 foreigners from that nation were registered”, Andina News Agency reported.
They also informed that there are between 1,000 and 1,500 Venezuelans entering Peru on a daily basis, according to figures from Migration services.
“Today, faced with the political and humanitarian crisis that Venezuela is experiencing and with a view to having an orderly, regular and safe migration of its citizens, the Peruvian authorities decided to reinforce the migratory control, adding the requirement of the visa”, the aforementioned media said.
Those Venezuelans wishing to travel to Peru requesting a humanitarian visa must process it at the general Peruvian consulate in Caracas and Puerto Ordaz, Venezuela.
Similarly, Venezuelans may apply for a tourist, business or immigration visa other than humanitarian visas before any Peruvian consulate abroad.
