Consular Section
April 26, 2022

The Consular Section offers a variety of services to the citizens of the United States and other countries, by means of its three sections. The citizens of most of the countries, including Peruvians, who wish to enter the United States must obtain a visa ahead of time.

  • The American Citizens Services Section unit issues passports and consular reports of births abroad; and provides emergency services to American citizens living and traveling in Peru.
  • The Visa Section provides immigrant and non-immigrant visa services to Peruvian citizens and citizens of other countries who are in Peru, while protecting the secure borders of the United States.
