Health Alert  – U.S. Embassy Lima March 23 2020

Location:  Peru (country-wide)

Event: The U.S. Embassy in Lima continues operations and is working in close coordination with the Peruvian Government to explore charter repatriation flights for U.S. citizens who wish to return to the United States. To date, approximately 600 Americans have departed Peru on these flights. Be advised that the government of Peru is limiting air traffic to repatriation travel for U.S. citizens facilitated through the U.S. government. Beware of scams. Up-to-date and credible information can be found on the U.S. Embassy’s official platforms.

If you have not yet contacted us and are interested in an evacuation/repatriation flight, please e-mail LimaACS@state.gov with the subject line “Flight Registration: LAST NAME, FIRST NAME.”

In your email please provide the following:

  • Full name
  • U.S. Passport number
  • Date of birth
  • Gender
  • Email address
  • Phone number
  • Current location and address

If you have already provided your information to LimaACS@state.gov or CuscoACS@state.gov, we will contact you with instructions once we have additional guidance.

You should receive an e-mail from the Embassy once you are added to a flight manifest. Please note, flights are not free, but you will not be asked to pay up front. More details on costs and the promissory note process at ow.ly/SkvR50ySr53.

Only manifested passengers may board flights. If you have not been manifested, please do not go to the airport.

U.S. citizens not in Lima or Cusco who are interested in charter flights should shelter in place until receiving flight information and transportation details from the Embassy. The Embassy is working with Peruvian authorities to ensure smooth transit for confirmed passengers within quarantine protocols.

The U.S. Embassy in Lima recommends U.S. citizens in Peru to adhere to all quarantine measures.
