Requirements for international tourists will be the same as applicable up to December 2020 - all passengers need to carry a negative PCR test report. Also, an antigen test has to be taken upon arrival at Jorge Chávez International Airport.

For domestic flights, tests are not needed but tourists have to sign an affidavit stating they do not have any COVID-19 symptoms.
