Peru Resident Working Visa

Peru Resident Working Visa

If you are going to Peru for religious reasons, you might need to get a Peru Resident Working Visa. In order to get this type of visa, you need to get in touch with the Peruvian General Directorate of Immigration and Naturalization.

After the guys above have issued the visa and sent the authorization to the consulate of your choice (be sure to inform the Directorate of Immigration where you would like to get your visa), you then need to give a set of documents (the usual stuff you need for most visas, including passport, photo, etc.) to finish the process of obtaining the visa (as described in the steps below).
