"We've shortened procedures, which previously lasted two years in a procedure, now does not exceed two months." We had an average of annual delivery of between 40 and 50 nationalities every year, and this year will culminate with 150 nationalities,"said Sevilla TV Peru.

"We have an approximate 300 nominations of annual nationalities that have to comply with the requirement, and product of this evaluation that takes place during these two months is that it is beginning to give (the Peruvian citizenship)", added.

The official stressed that his administration works on improving the treatment of foreigners who come to Peru, simplifying the formalities for the change of immigration status in order to work, invest or do business in the country; and for their respective naturalization.

-Inauguration-

For his part, the Minister of the Interior, Carlos Basombrío, inaugurated this morning the Peruvian nationality room, located in the national Superintendence of migrations, in a ceremony which was granted Peruvian nationality ten foreigners.

The inauguration had intended to reassess the significance of the Act confer Peruvian nationality to foreigners who have requested it and that met the legal requirements to obtain it.

Carlos Basombrío took oath to new-fangled compatriots. They pledged their loyalty to the Peru, the Constitution and national laws.

A Cuban, a Russian, two Brazilians, two Americans, two Mexicans, a Ukrainian and a Bolivian became Peruvian citizens and sang the national anthem accompanied by the singer Cecilia Barraza Creole and stamped his signature on a mural as a testimony of its commitment to the homeland.

Does anyone know how long it takes between applying for citizenship and actually getting it?

Hot Damn. Pretty soon language schools will be a thing of the past. We all got the Tower of Babel at our fingertips.
I'd be lost without these translation programs.

Sorry I can't resist this. I don't know how long it will take but you could refer to it as bobbing for birthrights (sorry but you did write "appling").

The Peruvian Embassy in Australia just sent me a document that states that a person has to have resided in Peru for two continuous years before he/she can apply for citizenship and that: "Tiempo que toma el trámite: Un (01) Año."

Can I ask whether the residency period has been reduced to 2 months or is it the "tiempo que toma el tramite" (on the assumption that the 1 year tramite actually took 2 years)?

Thanks!
