6 month visas?

Postby MikeNOLA » Fri Sep 05, 2008 9:06 pm

I heard that the new visas will be good for 6 months, which means no more 90 day exits. Is this true? And if so, when does it take effect?

It is true I got one by simply asking if I could have more days on my last entry. The guy said sure and 183 days is the new max and even moved his monitor so I could see him typing it into a box. I have pages upon pages of tourist stamps and he said nothing of them. This was on August 20th.

And I guess it is also possible to get the Carne De Extranjeria inside Peru by paying 200-odd dollars. It is no longer necessary to go to Chile to get the Carne.

Yep and yep, seems like they're trying to make things easier.

I was told by immigration that the new laws came into effect on 26th june having made the initial application for my residents visa on the 29th, consiquently I had to go to Arica to collect it but this turned into a good excuse to spend a week in Tacna.
I have subsiquently applied for and been granted my carnet which I picked up in Lima the other Monday which was the first day that they were operating a new system. It took me 6 hours to get it but now I´m 100% legal.

Might I add that it may be a very good idea for you to see what they input in the screen, because I have had TWO occasions where there have been irregularities due to the immigration officials NOT inputting the information.

I'm glad that they are now allowing people to obtain their C.E. without having to leave the country, or go border hopping so frequently to renew the tourist visa.

I also got 183 days when I entered this week. Very easy. I also have plenty of Peruvian stamps in my passport.
