Peru is enhancing efforts to attract increased numbers of Indian tourists as just 4,000 Indian nationals visited the nation in 2016. This is a very small number for a nation that boasts of Machu Picchu, Incan citadel, and archaeological sites in Cusco. Peru is also renowned for its rich textiles and cuisine. The Embassy of Peru in India is thus on a mission to increase the numbers of Indian tourists to Peru.
Jorge Juan Castaneda Mendez the Peruvian Ambassador to India said that there is a long way to go for enhancing ties between India and Peru. He was speaking at an event to commemorate the 196th Independence Day of Peru at Bengaluru.
The first step to enhance the relationship with India was taken in May with the opening of Art gallery in New Delhi. It consisted of photographs, information, and paintings related to Peru, as quoted by the Hindu. Textiles and traditional dresses of the country are also exclusively found in a section, said the Ambassador.
A book titled “Cultural Tour of Fabulous Peru” has also been launched, said Jorge Juan Castaneda Mendez.
The policy of extended visa has also been launched by Peru from this year for hassle-free travel. This is applicable for Indian tourists with a visa validity of at least 6 months. They can be from Canada, Australia, the UK or the US and can obtain a visa on arrival from Peru.
Embassy of Peru also wants to promote the traditional food of Peru in India. 1Q1- Kitchen and Bar was the venue of the I-Day celebrations of Peru at Bengaluru. This is the second Peruvian restaurant in India and the first one in Bengaluru.
