Immigration Law: Incoming
Not long ago, there was a time when Peru was a country that practically gave away permanent residencies to anyone that would request it, including ill-intended people seeking tax breaks in their home country. This immigrant status would then evolve into a Peruvian citizenship. Many took advantage of these gaping loopholes in an almost nonexistent immigration law and used it indiscriminately on criminal activities elsewhere and then sought refuge in Peru as their new home country. In essence, these actions tarnished the reputation of Peruvian nationals, which consequently created tougher migratory barriers for law-abiding Peruvians to gain commercial, professional or academic access to other nations around the world. A lot has changed since then as Peru’s economy grew steadily year after year while former economic giants were collapsing under the weight of their recessions.
Peru has been dubbed “recession-proof” by many financial publications from around the world and has thus become a place of strong interest for foreigners to do business in and with. Through the signing of various free trade agreements with, the list of investment sectors has gone from being mainly mining and oil industry based to now being real estate, agriculture, fishing, trade and various other niche markets. As a result of these prominent commercial changes, Peru has now become a tedious and complicated country for which to gain residency status for. Immigration laws are unreasonably cumbersome and the local immigration authorities are of little to no help in providing actual and factual information regarding work, investor or even family visas.
