I would assume you have to have a permanent residential address with visa before opening any type of bank account. How have other retired EXPATS relocated from the USA?
If you're not married to a Peruvian, rentista status is your only option (unless you are planning to open a business and invest in Peru). If I'm not mistaken a proof of $1000 monthly income is sufficient to apply for a resident visa.
