PERU: Visa-Free Entry for Certain Chinese Nationals

September 22, 2016

From 21st September 2016, qualifying Chinese nationals are able to enter Peru visa-free for business or tourism, for one or more stays totalling up to 180 days per six months.

To qualify, Chinese nationals must hold permanent residence or a visa valid for at least six months for Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom, the United States, or a Schengen Area country.

The waiver has been introduced to encourage more Chinese tourists to visit Peru after the country received over 19,000 Chinese visitors in 2015, which was a 16% increase on the number of visitors in the previous year.
