Travel within Peru’s Regions:  All U.S. citizens are urged to comply with Peru’s quarantine measures and security personnel instructions, including restrictions on long-distance travel.  All travelers are responsible for identifying safe and reliable methods to get to the designated meeting point on time.  Transit letters are issued only to individuals who have a confirmed seat on a U.S. Embassy-coordinated flight to aid in traveling to the meeting location.  The U.S. Embassy cannot facilitate private travel for individuals.  U.S. citizens outside of Lima who are interested in a repatriation flight should complete our repatriation form (https://bit.ly/3bx5ons).  A member of our team will contact you as options become available.

Lawful Permanent Resident (LPR) Physical Presence Requirements: Permanent residents are free to travel outside the United States, and temporary or brief travel usually does not affect your permanent resident status.  Residents who return to the U.S. within a year are generally considered to be in status.  If you have been outside of the U.S. for more than a year (365 days), you will need to apply for a returning resident visa (SB-1) when the embassy returns to normal operations.  Click here for more information on the returning resident visa process.
