PROMEPERU celebrates 10 years of “Marca Perú” and faces new challenges.

The Minister of Foreign Trade and Tourism of Peru (MINCETUR), Claudia Cornejo, informed that the Council of Ministers decided to suspend the mandatory quarantine for passengers traveling from abroad.

The requirement for PCR negative tests to travel domestically in Peru was also removed.

As reported on local Peruvian radio station, the minister said decision was made thanks to the slight improvment in the numbers of COVID-19 cases registered in the previous weeks of the pandemic.

To this point, she specified that, in reference to international flights, the 14-day mandatory quarantine will be eliminated for travelers from abroad. However, the requirement of a negative PCR test or a medical epidemiology discharge certificate will remain in place.
