From DIGEMIN website about naturalisation:
Ser mayor de dieciocho (18) años y tener mínimo dos (02) años consecutivos de residen- cia legal en el país.
It says you should have
a minimum of 2 consecutive years of legal residency; it doesn't say you should be in the country for 2 consecutive years. Would that mean you are a prisoner in Peru for 2 whole years without being able to visit other countries or visit family back home? If it were true, DIGEMIN's world suddenly became even more cruel than it was before!
