Alert – Overland Repatriation Efforts from Arequipa – U.S. Embassy Lima, Peru
March 27, 2020

Location:  Peru (country-wide)

Event:  Repatriation

The U.S. Embassy is organizing buses for tomorrow, March 28, to bring U.S. citizens from Arequipa to Lima for their onward flight back to the United States.

Late last night, the Peruvian government approved repatriation flights through April 1, making it easier for the U.S. Embassy and airlines to place Americans on flights. The U.S. Embassy is identifying vulnerable U.S. citizens for priority flights, minimizing no-shows, and planning for operations outside Lima and Cusco.

Peruvian President Martín Vizcarra announced yesterday that quarantine measures, border closures, and a nightly curfew will continue until April 12. The U.S. Embassy recommends U.S. citizens in Peru adhere to all quarantine measures.

More than 1,200 Americans have made it home from Peru. Our team continues to work around the clock. Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Western Hemispheres Affairs Julie Chung arrived today in Peru to support these efforts.

We are working hard to bring #AmericansHome.
