Travelers will all need a passport valid for at least 6 months after they depart. Currently, citizens from the US, Canada, Scandinavia, Western Europe, Japan, Latin America, South Africa, South Korea, and the Caribbean (except Cuba) do not need a visa. Travelers from other nationalities should check with the Peruvian Embassy for visa information. Entry requirements change with surprising frequency. It is each traveler’s responsibility to check with the consulate for the most up-to-date visa information.
For Peru, the standard tourist “visa” is the Tarjeta Andina de Migración (TAM, or Andean Migration Card). If you enter Peru by air, you should receive your TAM during the flight. Fill it in and present it upon arrival. The bottom third of the TAM will be handed back to you – keep it safe, as you’ll need it throughout your travels and to exit the country.
