I would not be surprised if they not only gave you all the information but also the paper work you might need to overcome your problems. My experience with Migraciones this year (although not directly this subject) is that they are streamlining their operations to be more user friendly, convenient and appear to be relaxing some of the more tedious parts of the system. After some discussions at the Information Desk I had the impression that updating the current Laws has been under discussion for some time. Try it, it might work for you.

Looks like the new prorroga rules are coming into effect:
https://www.migraciones.gob.pe/index.ph ... dimientos/
According to the new Resolucion Ministerial of Oct.16, 2015 (https://www.migraciones.gob.pe/documentos/RM0633.pdf), Residentes Familiares will no longer need to present the following documents to renew their residence visas:
Original o copia legalizada notarialmente o autenticada por el Fedatario de la DIGEMIN de la partida o Acta o Certificado de Nacimiento o Matrlnonio que acredite continuidad del vlnculo familiar por el cual obtuvo la residencia...
Requisito 5, Declaración jurada de quien solicitó la visa de residencia, dejando constar la vigencia del vinculo familiar con el extranjero y que su residencia es el Peru.
In case of Cambio de Calidad Migratoria a Inmigrante por Familiar de Residente, the following requirement is no longer needed:
Acreditar solvencia económica mlnima de 10 un de renta neta anual de acuerdo a su calidad migratoria.
So, the minimum income requirement seems to be annulled for those who are married to a Peruvian national.
And, finally, if I got it correctly, there will be no Requisito 13: Evaluación escrita y entrevista personal for the foreigners who obtained their residence through marriage in case they wish to apply for Peruvian passport.

I can confirm that at no stage was I required to present either a partida de matrimonio or a declaracion jurada.

In Peru, they have records of passport numbers. But if you get a new passport then you get a new passport number. So, no record of you ever been to Peru.

He was refused re-entry to Peru tuesday because he over the limit and had to buy a 1 way ticket back to the US. He is blocked for the next 160 days from re-entry but could be as much as three years because of his history of overstaying his 183 days per year for a number of years. He will be informed within 6 to 8 weeks what the final judgement will be.

First, a little background: I am a retired US citizen married to a Peruvian who is also a naturalized US citizen. In 2011, we purchased an apartment in Arequipa. Each year since then, we have traveled to Peru. We live 5 months in Arequipa and 7 months in California, USA.
Every year starting in 2012 when we travel to Peru we have requested a visa for a 183 day stay and until this year we had always been granted that request without any problems. This year we were told by the immigration officer that since we had previously been in Peru for 150 days within the previous 12 months he could only allow a 60 day visa. After a little begging on our part he relented and gave us 120 days. I didn't want to argue with him for the additional 30 days because I was afraid he'd take back the 120 and only give us 60. He stated that we'll have to pay the fine for the over stay upon leaving. He also suggested that my wife obtain her Peruvian passport. That's great for her but doesn't change anything for me.
According to the new law, If we want to continue to travel each year to Peru we can only get 90 days each year. Instead of using a calendar year the new law uses the previous 12 months. Its interesting that Peru allows foreigners to purchase and own property yet puts laws in place that limit the use of said property to only 90 days a year.
We are retired. We do not take anything away from any Peruvian. On the contrary, we add to the Peruvian economy. We do not want to live in Peru on a permanent basis. Five months a year is all we ask for and until this year it was never a problem. If 90 days a year is the maximum we can stay in Peru then owning property cannot be justified. The new law seems so counterproductive. What is Peru trying to prevent with this new law? Like many things in Peru, I just don't get it.
It has been suggested that I plead my case to someone in the Migraciones office. At the moment, I can't see that it will be productive. Yet I need to do something. When I figure it all out I'll post any results here.
