As of today, November 9, Peruvians do not need a visa to visit the United Kingdom for a period of up to six months.
"Good morning! Welcome to a new chapter in our bilateral relations. Starting this morning, Peruvians who would like to visit the United Kingdom for periods less than six months will be allowed to do so without applying for a visa. Better access. More exchange," British Ambassador to Peru Gavin Cook
expressed via Twitter on Wednesday.
This update strengthens bilateral relations, facilitating visits made by Peruvians to the United Kingdom, the British Embassy in Lima
highlighted on October 18.
"This opens new cultural, commercial, and academic doors, bringing you closer to the British Museum, Anfield, Edinburgh Castle, and much more," he remarked.
That month, the Peruvian Ministry of Foreign Affairs
welcomed the announcement, noting that this new stage in the migratory exchange will increase trade and investment between the two countries.
"Good news! The United Kingdom has announced that as of November 9, 2022, Peruvian nationals will be exempt from the visa requirements for short-term trips to said country, thus contributing to further expanding trade and investment opportunities," it stated.
In turn, the Peruvian Embassy in the UK
stressed that this measure will further strengthen bilateral relations and exchange in the commercial, tourist, investment, academic, and even political fields between both nations.
