Not violent. White collar variety but
I'd rather not go into detail.
So are there any excons here on the forum or excons that you know of that have moved to Peru to begin a new life?
Easy to enter the country with a "checkered past"?
To be clear I'm not seeking residency just a hide out.
Money won't be a problem (again don't want to go into detail) so I won't have to work.
Thanks in advance.
There is some question as to whether the Peruvian government will let people get away with living here 12 months out of the year as a tourist. The law states you get 6 months out of every 12 but who knows how the enforcement will really be at the border if you decide to leave the country every six months and come back and renew your permission. Of course there are also people that lick their permission expire in just continue to live in Peru illegally. Those people face a fine of $5 per day I want your permission has expired and they're not allowed to leave the country again until they pay that amount.
If you want to get permission to live in Peru as a resident and I know you've already said you don't having been convicted felon certainly could disqualify you from that.
Other than that if money is not a problem and if you don't really care of with your residency status in Peru is then you probably won't have any problem. I hope everything works out for you.
In terms of entering the country no one is going to do a background check on you your passport if you are American or perhaps British will entitle you to up to six months without a visa.
