Alert – Repatriation Costs & U.S. Entry Restrictions – U.S. Embassy Lima, Peru
March 28, 2020

Location:  Peru (country-wide)

Event:  There are no upfront costs for repatriation flights to the United States.  You will need to reimburse the U.S. government after returning to the United States.   Prior to boarding, you must sign a promissory note (also known as a DS-5528).  Bringing a signed copy of your DS-5528 will speed up your check-in processing at the airport.  If you do not have access to a computer and printer, we will have additional DS-5528 copies available on site.  The amount billed to evacuees is set by U.S. law and based on the cost of a full-fare economy flight to the designated destination(s) that would have been charged immediately prior to the events giving rise to the evacuation.  Click here for more details on costs and the promissory note process.

For information on entering the United States, questions and concerns about current restrictions, please monitor updates from the Department of Homeland Security on Twitter and at https://www.dhs.gov/.  Currently, there are no new specific limitations on travelers returning from Peru.  To date, special restrictions are in place for travelers returning from China, Iran, and certain European countries.  More information can be found on DHS’s factsheet on COVID-19.
