Lima: Since March 27, it was decided to exempt, with some restrictions, the temporary tourist and business visa to the citizens of India who visit Peru, according to Supreme Decree No. 006- 2017-RE of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

As India is the second most populated country in the world and with an economic growth that places it among the four largest emerging economies in the world, this becomes an exceptional opportunity to strengthen our strategies and increase the arrival of Indian visitors to our country.

According to the Supreme Decree, the exemption will apply to Indian citizens holding valid ordinary passports and proving that they will comply at least one of the following conditions:

A) Hold visas with a minimum validity of six (6) months of the United States of America, Canada, United Kingdom -Great Britain and Northern Ireland, Australia or any State belonging to the Schengen Area.
B) To have permanent residence in the United States of America, Canada, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, Australia or any State belonging to the Schengen Area.

The document stipulates that Indian citizens will have a maximum period of stay that will be up to one hundred and eighty (180) calendar days, whether as a continuous visit or several consecutive visits, during the period of one year.

It is worth noting that in 2016 there were 5,900 international arrivals coming from India, representing a growth of 4% with respect to the previous year. In addition, Indian travelers look for destinations rich in culture and unique natural beauty, are frequent travelers and have a travel culture to destinations such as Europe and North America. Therefore, PROMPERÚ will work in activities directed to the Indian tourist, revealing the extent of culture and history that our country has to offer.
