A Step-by-Step Guide to Filling out the Peruvian Health Affidavit and Geolocation Authorization Form.
Great news! As of October this affidavit is no longer required to enter Peru!

What is the Peruvian Health Affidavit and Geolocation Authorization Form?
The Peru Health form which is required by the government for entry into Peru as part of the Covid-19 entry regulations, is an online form that asks for your personal information along with your travel information, and any symptoms you may be experiencing. All persons traveling into Peru regardless of status – tourist, resident, Peruvian, adults and children, vaccinated or unvaccinated are required to fill it out. It is also an authorization for geolocation. However, this form only allows a Peruvian number, so we are unsure how they are using this geolocation system.
When do I have to fill out the health form before traveling, and what do I do with it?
The Peruvian health affidavit must be completed before you travel.
You will need to complete the health form 72 hours or less before flying and keep a copy of it with you as you travel. This is very important to complete before you arrive at the airport, as it can be complicated and delay travel! Additionally, you will need either: a completed vaccine card (with the last dose given 14 days or more before), a negative PCR test, or a medical discharge if you have tested positive for Covid in the last 3 months.
What you will need on hand in order to fill out the online Peru health form.
The Peruvian health affidavit asks for lots of information that you will need on hand. Be ready with:
- passport information
- date of arrival in Peru
- country of origin, written in Spanish
- destination department, province and district
- address where you will be staying (hotel, airbnb, etc.)
- flight information
- information of those you may be staying with
What you should know about the Peruvian Health Affidavit and Geolocation Authorization Form.
Sometimes the form doesn’t load correctly in certain browsers. If you are using a VPN, turn it off and try reloading the page. Additionally, you can try a different browser; we had no problems with Chrome, Firefox and Safari.
Many people have mentioned to us that they cannot find nationalities, states or cities in the drop-down lists where required. The names are always in Spanish! If you see them translated, switch off any translation program that may be running in the background by your browser.
Where can I find the Peru Health Affidavit form?
You can find the Peruvian health affidavit here. It is on the official Migrations website for Peru. Do not pay money to fill out this form on another site – although tricky, it is free.
Steps to help you fill out the online health form.
- On the first page of the Peruvian Health affidavit, you will select your preferred language. You will find this at the bottom of the page under nationality, if you are from the United States of America, select ‘EE.UU’ – the Peruvian way of writing USA. Then select ‘PAS’ under ‘documents’, short for ‘passport’. Enter your passport number in the box labelled ‘Document Number’, and input your date of birth before clicking search. Note that the birthdate is written DATE/MONTH/YEAR.
2. The confirm button will take you to a page where you will need to fill out your personal information, including your destination within the country.
3. Fill in your name. In many countries worldwide people have two last names. If you only have one you can leave one blank and the system will allow it.
4. Fill in your nationality and beware it will only show country names in Spanish. USA will be EEUU, England will be Inglaterra, etc.
5. Add the date of your arrival in Peru, click international trip and add your flight number. Fill in your country of origin (also in Spanish) and then fill in your destination department, province and district. If you will be in the Cusco area use, Cusco, Cusco, Cusco. If staying anywhere else, ask your hotel or agency where you will be staying on arrival. If you do not see Lima or where you are really going fill in Cusco, Cusco, Cusco. (No one is actually checking anything on this form.)
6. Here is the tricky part. You are asked for your phone number. We assume this is what they use for geolocation. However, you will be asked to put in two Peruvian phone numbers or the equivalent in amount of digits. If you don’t have a Peruvian number you can put in any numbers and the system will accept it. The first number you must put “51” in the first box, then three random digits followed by six random digits: “51” “xxx” “xxxxxx” . The next phone number also begins with “51” followed by three random digits then eight random digits: “51” “xxx” “xxxxxxxx”. It seems that this form was designed only for Peruvians…
7. Add your email in the required box.
8. Real address information… What does that mean? You would think your address in your home country, but you can only use Peruvian departments, provinces and districts. Therefore, use your hotel once more for this part. They then ask for your “real address after isolation” – just put the street address of your accommodation once again or another hotel address if you have it.
9. The next step asks about the people who you will be with at your “real address.” The good news is that this part can be left blank. We actually recommend you leave this part blank as many people have problems getting the form to load when they fill this in.
10. In the final step of completing Peru’s health declaration, you will be asked about any symptoms you may have. We have never ticked a box as symptomatic and therefore do not know what would happen if you check any of the symptom boxes – you will potentially be asked not to travel.
11. Lastly, tick the boxes before the declaration of oath and geolocation authorization and you will be taken to the Health Affidavit page, which you can download to your phone and/or print off. Carry this with you, as you will be asked for it more than once.
