Alert: Quarantine and Repatriation Update, Peru (April 4, 2020)

Location: Peru (countrywide)

Event: Today, roughly 470 Americans departed Peru, bringing the total number of repatriations to approximately 5,150.  There are flights confirmed on April 5 and April 6.  We will continue to work with Peruvian authorities and with the private sector to arrange additional flights and continue cooperating with the Peruvian authorities to secure landing permissions.

The U.S. Embassy-organized buses from Chimbote and Cajamarca arrive in Lima tomorrow morning for a repatriation flight later that day.  Transportation to Lima from Arequipa, Iquitos, Ica, Paracas, Pisco, Pucallpa and Tacna is slated for next week.

Per the Peruvian Government quarantine measures, tomorrow, Sunday, April 5, all businesses will be closed and there will be limited transportation options. We encourage people to comply with the Peruvian Government’s measures and to follow the instructions of Peruvian authorities.

We recommend you come to the Embassy only if you have a confirmed repatriation flight. Confirmed passengers will receive a repatriation flight confirmation e-mail with a link to a transit letter or other specific instructions.

We are working hard to bring #AmericansHome.
