Passport / Visa Requirements
Travelers from the United States, Canada and the EU need a valid passport to enter the country on trips of less than 90 days. Upon arrival, you'll be stamped and given an immigration card. Travelers must keep their passports and the card them at all times, especially in rural areas and on the Inca Trail where it is required by law. For security reasons, make a photocopy of your documents and store it in a different place than the originals. When you leave the country, you return the immigration card so it is important not to lose it. Travelers seeking more information can contact the Peruvian Embassy in their country. American citizens can also use the U.S State Department website as a resource.
