Additional Flight Monday April 6, New Quarantine Measures and Regional Repatriations – U.S. Embassy Lima, Peru (Apr. 3, 2020)

Location: Peru (countrywide)

Event: Two flights will depart today, one each from Lima and Cusco. The Peruvian government has approved an additional chartered repatriation flight on Monday, April 6 from Lima. We will continue to work with Peruvian authorities and with the private sector to explore the possibility of additional flight options, but if you plan to return to the United States we urge you to do so as soon as possible, as we cannot guarantee that repatriation flights will continue indefinitely.

Buses from Piura, Chiclayo and Tumbes depart for Lima today, and others are scheduled to bring travelers from Cajamarca on Saturday, April 4. Transportation to Lima from Chimbote, Tacna, and Arequipa is slated for Sunday, April 5, and an additional bus from Paracas, Pisco and Ica is scheduled for Monday, April 6. Please continue to monitor your emails as additional information is forthcoming.

Peruvian President Martin Vizcarra recently announced additional quarantine measures, including a gender-based limitation on visits to grocery stores and banks, and other routine business. Men will be allowed to leave their homes only on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Women will be allowed to leave on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. No one will be allowed to conduct routine business on Sundays. These measures will take effect starting today Friday, April 3.
