Travellers to Peru for business purposes do not need to obtain a business visa for visits involving marketing development, meetings with clients, seminars, trade fairs, or other marketing activities. Although some Peruvian officials may advise otherwise, the Peruvian Foreign Ministry has confirmed that Australians do not need a visa to visit Peru for purposes of business development.

A business visa is only required for Australians who plan to sign official documents while in Peru. Travellers on a business visa are also required to complete a statutory declaration upon leaving the country to state that they have received no money for work done during their stay in Peru on the business visa. This procedure has caused some Australian visitors difficulties at the Lima airport.

Note that all visitors to Peru are required to keep their white entry card and hand this to immigration officials when they leave the country.

For further information please contact your nearest Peruvian Embassy or Consulate prior to arrival.
