Many of you are living in Peru with a Carnet de Extranjeria (“CE”), and eventually, some of find we need to get a duplicate. There are a couple reasons why you might need to get a new CE; yours may have been lost or stolen, or you may have had it so long that the back is full of stickers from paying the Tasa Anual de Residencia and Prorroga de Residencia. If this is the case, then it is necessary to renew your CE when you go for your next round of stickers.
The process of getting a duplicate Carnet de Extranjeria is quite simple, although it can be tedious. If your CE is lost or stolen, you’ll need to make a police report before going to the immigration offices. (To get a copy of the police report, it’s necessary to pay S/.7.60 to the Banco de la Nacion and return with that receipt, so this can be a two day process)
- Form F-007A – you can print out a free copy here or get one for free from the information desk on the first floor at MIGRACIONES.
- You’ll need to take the form to the Banco de la Nacion and pay the following: 2.1.The fee for processing by S/.49.00
2.2.The fee for duplicate by USD 15.00 if you are Resident or USD 20.00 if you are Immigration
- You’ll have to be up to date on your Prorroga de Residencia and pay of Tasa Anual de Extranjeria
- If you are renewing your CE because it’s full, you’ll need to also have a copy of the front and back of your current carnet OR
- In the case of a lost or stolen CE, you’ll need to have a copy of the before mentioned police report
After turning in this paperwork, you’ll go back in two days. When you return, they’ll take a new picture and fingerprints. Once that’s done, you’ll have your new carnet within about an hour, and you’ll be ready to go.
