illiegal Aliens can regularize their situation

Postby sbaustin » Mon Jan 13, 2014 8:56 am

Looks like those of you that have overstayed your visa might be able to fix your status.

"Los extranjeros que hayan ingresado al país antes del 31 de diciembre de 2011 y que permanezcan de forma irregular en nuestro territorio, tienen un plazo de 180 días para presentar sus solicitudes ante Migraciones y cambiar dicha situación migratoria."

It looks like you might have to pay the overstay fine, will get a 2 year resident visas along with a promise that you will get a job in that time.

Sounds good.

The Peruvian immigration system is becoming like the one in Europe in the US; being illegal pays off.

Instead of going trough all the costs, hassle and bureaucracy at immigration and the effort of finding an employer who's willing to sponsor your workpermit, just overstay your visa and you get it straight away without any hassle.

That's on the paper, lets see how it will work out on reality. Don't forget we're in Peru, not in Germany.

It only applies for visaoverstayers that arrived before December 2011. So, if you borderhopped in the meantime, you won't qualify.

So, you must have been overstaying for the last 24 months or more.
I think that many of the foreigners that have been overstaying for a very long time and that are working on low wages won't be able to afford the fine so they will stay illegally.

I also think that the process to get a resident visa won't be free either and there will be costs involved.

I think immigration is mainly looking on collecting overstaying fines and collecting application fees for the resident visas.

Yeah, but you got to be aware of the back taxes. They will collect overstay and may even ask for back-taxes (Tax Resident).
