Peru and France signed an agreement to allow young people from both nations, between 18 and 30 years, to visit the other country for a period of up to one year.
“According to a statement from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, young people, during their stay, will have the authorization to work and thus pay for their travel and accommodation expenses”, informed Perú 21.
The Minister of Foreign Affairs of Peru, Néstor Popolizio, and the Ambassador of France in Peru, Antoine Grassin, signed the agreement for the establishment of the “Holidays and Work” program.
The Foreign Ministry recalled that Peru has signed similar agreements with New Zealand, Australia and the countries of the Pacific Alliance, which enjoy a great reception by young Peruvians and foreigners.
