It was decided to allow citizens of India visit Peru, with certain restrictions, without temporary tourist and business visas since 27 March, according to the Peruvian Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ Super Decree.
Because India is the second most highly populated country in the world and is one of the four largest emerging global economies, the South American country decided to increase the number of Indian arrivals to its shores.
As per the Supreme Decree, the exemption will apply to Indian nationals holding normal valid passports and if they satisfy one of the two following conditions:
1) They should be holders of visas with at least six months validity of the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia Canada or any member state of the Schengen Area. 2) They should have permanent residence in the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia Canada or any member state of the Schengen Area.
The document allows Indian citizens to stay for not more than 180 calendar days, either on single entry or multiple entries, during one year.
Peru witnessed 5,900 Indian arrivals in 2016, which was a growth of four percent when compared to the year prior to it. Zee News says that Peru views Indian tourists as those who visit places that are culturally rich and are endowed with natural beauty. They favour destinations such as North America and Europe.
