Peruvian Visa

The first thing you have to bear in mind as an individual (or a group) traveling to Peru is the need for a visa. Foreigners (including Nigerians) and non-citizens who intend to enter the country for the purpose of schooling, tourism, business, visitation, research, or for any other reasons are expected to have a Peruvian visa. Without one, you will not be allowed into the country.

There are five different types of visas which you can use in going to Peru, and each one of them depends on the purpose of your intention in the country. Currently, the types of visas which are issued out to intending travelers include —

  1. Peruvian Study Visa — This is the type of visa that is required from Nigerians who plan to study when they get to Peru. The major requirement for this particular type of Peruvian visa is an admission letter or acceptance form from the educational institution of your choice in Peru. You may apply for a Peru study visa without a proof of admission into an educational body in Peru if you like, but I cannot assure you of any success without the necessary documents.
  2. Peruvian Business Visa — This is the second type of visa required from Nigerians. Peru welcomes immigrants with no conditions, but are always happy to welcome businessmen and businesswomen into the country especially if their businesses are legitimate and approved by the Peruvian law. Nigerians going to the country for the purpose of trading or doing business will be issued this visa for a reasonable fee of $50.
  3. Peruvian Tourist Visa — This visa is issued to foreigners who wish to visit the country for a short period of time just for fun and leisure activities.
  4. Peruvian Transit Visa — Is meant for travelers passing through Peru to other destinations. This visa is valid for only three days.
  5. Peruvian Work Visa — This is the last type of Peruvian visa on our list. If you’re going to Peru for a job, this is the visa for you. You are expected to provide evidence that you have obtained a job in Peru during the time of your Visa application.
