Practical issues of becoming permanent (in Peru)

Postby glober » Tue Jan 18, 2011 7:02 pm

I hesitated before registering as I didn't think there was to many active folks
around here (perhaps bias, but I haven't felt much activity), but I thought I
would give it a chance and, perhaps, you are worth talking to.. And I write
something worth reading :P


OK, so, I did personally find it quite amusing of several people doing posts
regarding moving to the States and needed advice, this is because I am
not from the U.S and couldn't imagine why anyone would want to live there,
as a Northern European the U.S is a third world country for me and I rather,
in any circumstance, live in Peru then the U.S, but perhaps that is subjective,
but I do find it amusing, I realize most of you expats are North Americans
in general so don't take it the wrong way, absolutely no insult intended and
as expats I will assume you are more open minded about your own country
then most back home are (reason for my point there).

I also wanted to take the chance making a point about the issues with
prostitution, perhaps not fair, but I think, of living all over the world,
seeing everything from 60 year old men with 15 year old "wifes" and
such, I can see the issues the immigration have, ESPECIALLY when it
comes to GENUINE relationships, whiles us (not knowing them, have
no relationship to it etc) stand there and "judge them" for some guy
marrying a hooker or some old woman getting a young guy as her mate,
but at the same time I think its valid to make a judgement but perhaps
try to keep it "open" before condemning people to much, just thought
about it reading someones point regarding immigrations issues with
giving visas.



Eh, ok, to my point (sorry, I never join Forums so I took the chance
to air myself a bit): I live in Trujillo with my Wife, we had no issue
with the marriage other then the enormous hassle that made me want
to kill myself, but when said and done it solved itself (been married
over a year now), the thing is that I never solved the issue with
a permanent visa/"green card" or whatever term used for this, and
I am wondering how difficult it will be to solve and how much it will
be financially being as they are atleast as corrupt as in the western
world (ho ho ho).

My wife is also a Police Officer which does not improve things to
much "paper wise", as the PNP here is similar to say U.S military
in that you sign contract and practically "owned" until a certain
time, so if I would like to jump on a plane and fly over to Germany,
U.S, China etc, I can forget about it as they do not allow, but as
I have, at the moment, no interest in this and simple want to
solve the legal issues before we have a child (to make it easier
all around), I am turning to people that have gone through this
before and, I will presume, knows the hassle.

If you would like to post a mail here, feel free to, or if you
would like to mail me ([email protected]), that would be
great, either way is fine by me, I will try to check around here
in hope we got alot of active people.

Looking forward to hear from you guys.

Look at the "PARA EL CASO DE CASADO (A) CON PERUANA(O)" section.
No bribes involved, just some standard papers.

Wait, I don't get one part. Maybe I am an idiot but if your wife is the police, not you, so why wouldn't you be able to hop on a plane and go somewhere? Or maybe you mean that you can't leave with your wife coming with you? I am a bit curious.

Si, can't go with my wife as she is not "allowed" to (need alot of paperwork solved
if we would like to go together),

Thanks for the links, Checking the Carnet de Extranjeria, perhaps I should have mentioned that my castelliano
is horrid. :P

If you are married to a Peruvian you do not have to have permission to leave the country, as long as you have a current stamp on your CE.

The law was changed a few years ago. I used to fly to Ft Lauderdale on a shopping sprees, never had an issue.
My first CE was a hassle becasue I had to get permission. Now if you have a retirement, work visa etc... that may be a different story.

Now if you are speaking of your wife traveling , there are certain countries she cannot travel because she is Peruvian. Check with the consulate of the country that you wish to travel with her.

He's saying that because she's a police officer, there are issues with her leaving the country - and he doesn't want to travel without her.

Yeah, Like Kelly said, its about her not having a right to leave because
of regulations in the PNP (and presumably other military related areas
as well I guess), and I have no interest in leaving my wife and go to
Destination X without her.

But as I currently I have no interest in it at the moment, its not a big
deal but would be nice to solve it, which I know I can if I happen to have
alot of money available, which I dont (I think I can cash her out for roughly
7000/s), but then again, We live in Peru, have House here etc and I
have no interest in MOVING anywhere, just Holiday would be nice, I know
my wife would like to see some parts of the world and it would be fun
to take her.
