Location: Peru (country-wide)
Yesterday, the U.S. Embassy coordinated with the Peruvian Navy to reach stranded U.S. citizens by boat in the Amazon region so they could return home. Today, two flights will leave Lima, and one will depart from Cusco.
If you were contacted by the U.S. Embassy last night, please proceed to the indicated rally point. If some of your family members were not included on the manifest, we will place them on a standby list at the rally point. We are making every effort to fly families together.
Some charter flights have had to take off without filling every available seat, a huge frustration for all of us. We know that moving from place to place has become complex, given the extraordinary public health measures now in place. If are manifested on a flight, we urge you to do everything you can to follow the instructions and to arrive on time. Unfortunately, we are unable to add people on short notice due to transportation security requirements.
Our team continues to work around the clock to assist U.S. Citizens in Peru and to make more repatriation flights available.
We are working hard to bring #AmericansHome.
