Getting the visa has always been straight forward, but it is essential to show good reason to return to Peru, such as statements for bank accounts, credit cards, employment and assets ( such as property ownership) Always be honest with them and you will have no problem. The first time we went the consulate asked for a written invitation. I promptly wrote one whilst we were at the interview.

Do you mind me asking which visa you applied for? There are two which seem suitable, the general visitor visa and the family visitor visa. The problem with the latter is they look for the husband to be a UK resident (clearly not the case as I am resident here in Peru)
Several times my wife has got a Schengen visa - the last time with the French embassy she said it was a complete pleasure, they informed her that as the wife of an EU national she was welcome to visit, no visa costs etc... With the UK embassy in Lima they refuse to even answer questions on visa - bizarre.
Anyway, back on topic - UK visa - if you remember which visa you applied for that would be great.
Which visa are you applying for?
