Alert: Repatriation Update, Peru
April 2, 2020

Location: Peru (countrywide)

Event: Two flights will depart tomorrow, April 3, one each from Lima and Cusco. The U.S Government has Peruvian government approval for chartered repatriation flights through Sunday, April 5. We will continue to work with Peruvian authorities and with the private sector to arrange additional flights, but if you plan to return to the United States we urge you to do so as soon as possible, as we cannot guarantee when they will occur. Peruvian authorities continue to work cooperatively with us to arrange these flights even as they tighten public health restrictions in order to fight the pandemic, but we cannot foresee the effects of any future quarantine efforts.

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 their homes only on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. No one will be allowed to conduct routine business on Sundays. These measures will take effect on Friday, April 3.

The Peruvian government will provide additional clarification on these measures this evening, but our current understanding is that it will not affect repatriation efforts. All manifested travelers should carry a copy of their transit letter at all times.

To ensure that we are aware of your interest in repatriation, if you have not already done so, please register at https://bit.ly/3bx5ons. DO NOT register multiple times.

We are working hard to bring #AmericansHome.
