traveling soon & departure procedures /carnet de extranj

Postby maryjo » Wed Nov 12, 2008 1:39 pm

Hi friends,
I was trying to find the thread from a while back that talked about persons w/ the carnet de extranjeria and the process to leave the country (temporarily).
I am planning to travel in the next couple of weeks, and I asked my sister-in-law, who's helped me throughout the immigration process. She came back to me with a form (from our accountant I think), "Sunat Formulario No.1495".
I was told to fill out this form... basically to state that I have earned no revenues, and therefore owe no taxes, dates of departure and return, etc ... and this should be accompanied by a letter from my husband (who's Peruvian) stating his responsibility for me and any possible taxes. And that seemed to be all, just present this on departure(?????) :?

So who's done this recently? I would like to know what else is missing here... seems way too easy.

Thanks all

I'd got to SUNAT and make sure that it doesn't have to be legalised. Funny about the letter from your husband. I never heard about that.

Hi Maryjo,

If you did not have anything to pay, the procedure is easy. You need basically "una declaracion jurada" which certifies that you did not have any income & "una carta de garantia" from your husband. Because in the legal logic on one hand you say that you do not have any income but on the other hand you leave in the country as a resident so someone should be responsible for yours incomes. The closet legal responsible is your husband/wife.

Naturegirl gave you a good advice, follow it. Same for the carta de garantia by the way, just to be sure.

Hi all,

this is just terribly confusing - I have a CE, working here, and I'm going on a short holiday overseas. So I have to fill out this Sunat form, or a different one (there are three in the Sunat website - why on earth you need a form when you're coming back is silly, but anyway...). I leave in 4 days, so I hope the process is quick!

Tips anyone?

Hi Catt,

As limaclub mentioned, it really depends on your situation and what type of carnet you have.

This is how I understand it.
I have a carnet based on marriage to a peruvian familiar del residente[i][/i]. If you have that, you don´t require any of those papers. Your Carnet, and the form they give you at the airport is all you will need.

If your carnet is based on work, you will need to provide the necessary papers to show you have paid your taxes.

The last time I left Peru was my first time since receiving a carnet. I brought every paper you could think of, notarized letter from my wife, the necessary form to show i have paid taxes, and when I went through customs they didn´t ask for anything. After they let stamped me out, we actually decided to ask why they didn´t require ask for any of these forms, they explained that it´s not necessary if your carnet is familiar del residente This is something we had explained to Immigrations before we left when we were asking, and their information was completely contradictory to what we were told at the airport, really frustrating.

In a couple days I´m leaving the country for the second time and I still worry that this time around they will be asking for something new, so lets see how it goes.

I think that people that have a CE got hassled more.

When I arrived (back from Cuba) yesterday. The immigration officer asked me 3 times if I have a CE. When I said that I did'nt, he stamped my passport and gave me 183 days without hassle.
