Resumption of Regular Commercial Flights:  We are aware that certain commercial airlines are advertising routine flights from Peru to the United States in the coming weeks.  Please note that, at this time, the U.S. Embassy has received no credible indication that the Peruvian government will authorize routine commercial flights in the near future, as Peru’s borders and commercial airports across Peru remain closed.  Peruvian President Martín Vizcarra’s four-phase plan to reopen the Peruvian economy remains in Phase One at this time.
