Useful information for Tours to Peru from UK
We know than traveling overseas can be overwhelming since there are plenty of things to consider. But if you are properly prepared, you can make the best of your tour.
For your further reassurance, we will explain to you all the travel requirements you will need for your tours to Peru from UK. This piece of general information will make your journey a successful one.
Flights from the UK
There are no direct flights from the UK to our country. So, your tours to Peru from UK involve switching airplanes in Europe or America.
The permutations are endless, so depending on the route and stopovers, the flight can take between 16 and 22 hours, and even more. But this is nothing compared to the wonderful time you will spend on your luxury holidays in Peru. Furthermore, the most common routes for tours to Peru from UK are via Amsterdam, Madrid, and Frankfurt. Also, via Miami, Atlanta, New York, and Houston.
Needless to say, the fares vary as much as your route option. Keep in mind that the closer you get to the departure date, the higher the price is likely to be.
Visa and passport
Peru is basically a country of open doors. Citizens of the U.S., Canada, and the European Union don’t need to apply for a tourist visa.
You only need a valid passport. It has to have at least six months of validity before your return date and at least 2 free pages in the visa section. Really easy, isn’t it?
You will receive a TAM (Tarjeta Andina de Migración) and an entry stamp that says the number of days you can stay in Peru.
Indeed, the maximum period for tourists to stay in Peru is 183 days and it’s not possible to extend it. If you want to stay longer for other purposes like study, work or business, you must apply for the corresponding visa at the Peruvian consulate.
On the other hand, while it is not required by the immigration authorities, some airlines require you to show your return ticket to be able to board the plane.
We know you want to have an incredible experience in our country. Indeed, there are plenty of Peru adventure tours, but not having a return ticket can be the kind of adventure that ends up being a disappointment.
So, we recommend having your return ticket on hand to avoid inconveniences for your tours to Peru from UK.
*If you overstay, you will need to pay a fine. So, take the proper precautions.
As travel experts, we always recommend looking at the customs procedures before you enter any country. For more detailed information, you can contact the Peruvian Consulate in London.
Besides, if you plan to return to the UK via Europe, take into consideration that the customs authorities in European airports often confiscate duty-free alcohol purchased at the duty-free shops in Lima airport.
This is a little bit disappointing because of everybody interested in visiting Machu Picchu and other incredible Peruvian sights want to get a unique souvenir of their visit like a Pisco bottle.
Traveling with children
Take this item into consideration if you are traveling with children under the age of 18 years.
Children traveling on a British passport who have resident status in Peru need notarial written permission (issued in Peru) from the parents to leave the country.
This permission must mention the purpose of the trip, the proposed destination and the departure and return date. If it’s not possible to obtain the notarial permission, the kid will need judicial written permission.
On the other hand, children who travel as tourists don’t need these permissions. But keep in mind that immigration authorities are free to request them if the child has stayed in the country for over 183 days or in circumstances that they considered suspicious.
