We have put together a set of questions and answers which we hope will give you confidence when travelling to Peru.
Are the borders open? If so, what are the entry requirements?
Yes, Peru’s borders are open, except for travellers coming from India, South Africa or Brazil. All travellers must provide a negative PCR test taken no more than 72 hours before departure.
Where will I need to wear a mask? Will I be provided with one in case I forget mine?
Masks are required by Peruvian law. The use of double masks are now required in hotels and restaurants. Spare masks will be provided.
What protocols do hotels have to follow to keep us safe?
Hotels must organise regular temperature checks at entrances, provide hand sanitizer and ensure the use of double masks.
Are restaurants open? Shops? Nightclubs? What are the protocols they have to follow?
Most restaurants and shops are open, but nightclubs are not. They must also organise regular temperature checks at entrances, provide hand sanitizer and ensure the use of double masks.
Is there any sort of curfew?
Lima, Ica, Nazca, Chincha and Puno all have a curfew from 11pm to 4am. In Cusco, the Sacred Valley, and Machu Picchu the curfew is from 10pm to 4am.
Will vehicles be regularly disinfected? Will I have to wear a mask during transfers?

Will I be tested for Covid throughout my trip? Will my guides be regularly tested?

What will happen if I test positive whilst on the trip? Where will I have to stay?
In the event of a positive test, you will be given instructions from the Peruvian health team.
