The tourist and business visitor visa requirement for incoming Indian nationals entering Peru has been waived through Supreme Decree N° 006-2017-RE published on Monday in El Peruano official gazette, the Peruvian Foreign Affairs Ministry said.
The document stipulates that Indian nationals shall enter Peru visa free for a stay of up to 180 days, either for a continuous visit or several consecutive visits, within a 12-month period.
The exemption will apply to Indian citizens holding a visa for at least six months or a permanent resident status in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia or any Schengen State.
The reciprocal measure follows on India’s decision to liberalize tourist and business visa regime for Peruvians, announced last week.
The regulation was inked by President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski and Foreign Affairs Minister Ricardo Luna.
