PERU: Significant Processing Delays

October 17, 2022

As a result of COVID-19, Peru remains in a State of National Emergency and this has greatly impacted the average processing times of residence visa applications.

Peruvian law mandates that the authorities approve or review any applications within thirty (30) days from submission. However, given the current situation in the country, processing times are protracted from thirty (30) days to about four (4) or five (5) months.
