Entry requirements for Peru:

Can I enter Peru if I am unvaccinated/not-fully vaccinated?

Yes! You can enter Peru if you are unvaccinated/not-fully vaccinated however you would need to provide a negative COVID-19 test result.

If you’re unvaccinated/not-fully vaccinated travellers:

Do I need a negative test to enter Peru?

Yep! You’ll need either a negative PCR test taken with 72 hours of your flight or a negative antigen test taken with 24 hours of your flight. However if you have tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 3 months you can show evidence of this instead of a negative PCR. Our thoughts… Take a PCR before travel, just to make sure!

Do I need a vaccine to enter Peru?

Currently nope, it’s not mandatory to have a COVID vaccine to enter Peru however, if you are unvaccinated you will need to fill out a health declaration at least 72 hours before your arrival.

Do I need to quarantine when entering Peru?

Nope, no quarantine upon arrival which means you can kick start your epic trip as soon as you get there!

 

Do I need to quarantine when returning to the UK if I'm fully vaccinated?

 

If you are in Peru and you're fully vaccinated, then before you travel back to England, you must book and pay for a COVID-19 test (either lateral flow or PCR) that is to be taken after you arrive in England. You'll also need to complete a passenger locator form in the 48 hours before you arrive in England. When you're back in England, you can take the COVID-19 test any time after you arrive and before the end of day 2 at the latest. The day you arrive is day 0. You do not have to quarantine when you arrive in England. If your test result is positive, you must self-isolate. If your lateral flow test result is positive, you must also take a PCR test. If your lateral flow is negative, no problemo... go about your life as normal!

 

Do I need to quarantine when returning to the UK if I'm not fully vaccinated?

 

If you are in Peru and you're not vaccinated or only partially vaccinated, then, like fully-vaccinated travellers, you must complete a passenger locator form within 48 hours before you arrive in England. Unlike fully-vaccinated travellers, you must take a COVID-19 test in the 2 days before you travel to England. You must also pay for day 2 and day 8 COVID-19 PCR tests that are to be taken after you arrive in England. When you're back in England, you must take the first test on or before day 2 and the second test on or after day 8. The day you arrive is day 0. If the day 2 test is positive, you must self-isolate for the full 10 days. You only have to take the day 8 test if the day 2 test is negative. If the day 8 test is negative, you're good to go, you can end your quarantine! If the day 8 test is positive, you have to self-isolate for 10 full days.

 

WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO VISIT PERU?

The best time to visit Peru is between May and October when it’s the dry season, blue skies and sunshine galore! Beautiful right? The months with the most rainfall are January and February, with the amazon experiencing more rainfall between November and March. But with a little rain comes a lot of advantages, the rainforest is a green, luscious and full of colour. Plus flights are quite a bit cheaper! Win win right? You might just need to pack an umbrella, but hey a bit of rain doesn't hurt anyone! Whenever you decide to travel make sure to pack for lots of sunshine, bulk buying sun cream anyone?!?
