Leaving Peru have Carnet Extranjeria - what to do?

Postby jayrodblue » Thu Oct 23, 2014 2:52 pm

Hello,
I am planning on leaving Peru within the next month and need to know a few things. Since I´ve never left while having a CE before, I wanted to know if there is anything special I have to do or if I can just go freely to the airport and head back home without any problems? My contract ended at work so I won´t owe the Sunat anything..does anyone have any advice or knowledge in this matter?

Thanks,

Jarod

When I had it I would just go to the airport with my passport and travel back and forth between Peru and the U.S. As long as it is not expired you are fine to just leave the country.

If you are leaving Peru permanently it might be a good idea to have the carnet cancelled. Could save you some aggravation if you ever have to visit Peru again. Once I had let it expire and could not leave Peru until it was renewed, it was a big hassle at the airport and we had to postpone our trip by a couple days. I just had it cancelled because I wasn't planning on staying permanently in Peru anymore.

Thanks James,

Yes, my CE is currently active till next year. I had heard that they take it from you when you leave but I am not for sure about that. Kind of wanted to keep it as a souvenir..So all I would need is to go to the airport and use my passport like normal travel..I think you have to present a document from your former employer so you can leave the country also, is that correct, would you know?

Thanks,

If you have it cancelled they will stamp your passport and give you a timeframe to leave the country, you won't get to keep the carnet. This will allow you to enter Peru again as a tourist with no problems.

To just go through departures at the airport, as long as the carnet is still valid and your passport is valid, they have no way of knowing when or if you plan on returning. You could keep the carnet, but if you ever plan on entering Peru again then you could run into trouble because they will still have you listed as a legal resident. Then you would have problems leaving the country because they do require the carnet to be unexpired for legal residents. At this time you would need to either go through the hassle of renewing or cancelling the carnet.

HI James,

We will be leaving the country and my husband must cancel his residency.
I was looking at the Digemin site and they list the following as requirements:

Formulario F-007 (gratuito)
Recibo de pago del Banco de la Nación por derecho de trámite (S/. 20.80 nuevos soles)
Carné de extranjería con la prórroga de residencia y pago de la Tasa Anual de Extranjería (TAE) al día
Carta notarial de garantía o liquidación de Impuesto expedida por la SUNAT (exclusivamente para mayores de edad)

Did you have to present the carta notarial de garantía? Or how did you manage it?
Thanks in advance!
Regards,

Argidd

I've taken two trips in the last couple months. If you aren't cancelling your carnet, all you need to do is go to the airport and fill out the same TAM (I think is the name) card that all Peruvian citizens fill out. They will keep the large page and you must keep the small part for your return trip. When you arrive back in Peru they will take the small card from you and that's it.

You are talking about the tax form...yes I had to have a Peruvian citizen sign it and vouch for me that I did not owe any taxes, then present this at the office in Brena where they cancelled the residency. Once the residency was cancelled they stamped the passport with something stating I had 48 hours to leave the country. So make sure you have your flight booked before cancelling the residency because they expect you out asap. You can always re enter later as a tourist but when the residency is cancelled you must leave right away. At the airport all they looked at was the passport and their computer which stated everything was in order.

If you want to leave the country and have a carnet de extranjería you may have to get a certiifacte to present at Passport control when you leave the country. The last time I left , in October of this year I presented a Formulario 1692 Certificado de REntas y Rentenciones, I asked the lady at passport control what would happen if I didn’t have this document and she told me that I would not be able to board my flight of go past her desk. The following information is on the internet if you type in “formulario 1692:

Leaving Peru and Income Tax



Published : October 31 2006

By Ricardo Guevara Bringas
Foreign residents who have been residing in Peru can be in for a rude surprise when they try to leave the country if they do not do consider some of the legal requirements specific to expat residents. Foreigners who obtained any kind of income during their stay in Peru are obliged to file certain tax forms before leaving Peru. Indeed, they will be asked to provide the migratory authorities with one of the forms below:
• 1.1) Formulario virtual 1692. Foreigners must ask their employers or clients to provide them with a certificado de rentas y retenciones. By such forms, the employer or the client declares that he or she duly retained the income tax at the moment the foreigner was paid. The employer/client will obtain such form through the virtual services offered by SUNAT and must print and sign the form N°1692. This form will expire after 30 days of the filing with the Sunat via the Internet.
However, note that this procedure does not necessarily need to be carried out on-line at the Sunat Webpage. The employer/client may use a physical form called formulario 1492.
• 1.2) Formulario 1492. Foreigner may ask to their employer/client a certificado de rentas y rentenciones. The employer must sign this certificate form N° 1492 which will expire after 30 days from its signature by the employer/client.
It must be mentioned that in cases 1) and 2) above, said forms will include incomes that foreigner obtained over the last 12 months or income obtained as from the moment the last form was issued if applicable. If there is more than one employer or client, it must be obtained one form from each of them.
• 1.3) Formulario 1495. Conversely, foreigners who entered Peru with the following visas: artista, religioso, estudiante, trabajador, independiente o imigrante and they did not get any income during their stay in Peru, they must declare such fact on the form N° 1495 provided by SUNAT.
• 1.4) Formulario 1494. Finally, where the employer/client is a foreign company located abroad and thus it did not retain any income tax, foreigners must fill the form N° 1494 by which it is declared that he or she directly paid the income tax. A receipt which proves that the foreigner paid the income tax must also be provided.

My former boss was asked for it, but he was on a work visa. Every single time he left the country.

My husband has a CE because of marriage, and he has never been asked for it.
