Passport validity for entering Peru

Postby Nemoshark » Tue Aug 18, 2015 3:54 pm

Hi,

Does anyone know how much validity a visitor needs to have on their passport when entering Peru? I have a New Zealand passport.

I know I've read that it must be valid for the next six months but for the life of me I can't find the page. You may have a problem getting a six month tourist visa when your passports expires in less time.

According to the Consulate General of Peru in Barcelona it's 6 months:

CIUDADANOS ESPAÑOLES

LOS CIUDADANOS ESPAÑOLES PODRÁN INGRESAR AL PERÚ SIN NECESIDAD DE VISADO DE TURISMO. REQUERIRAN PORTAR SU PASAPORTE EN VIGOR Y EL BILLETE DE SALIDA DEL PERÚ. (SE RECOMIENDA QUE EL PASAPORTE TENGA MAS DE 06 MESES DE VIGENCIA).
