Guide to the Peruvian Health Affidavit & Geolocation Authorization Form


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: 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.

  1. 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.

 Choosing Country

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.

Backcountry Mountain Road & Cross Country

Our Cross Country MTB tours take you from one spectacular destination to the next. On these, you’ll cycle literally across whichever country you’re visiting. For instance, check out our Andes to the Amazon tour, where you travel from Cusco to the Peruvian Amazon. 

Our current XC vacations are made up of long-distance rides on backcountry roads. If you are looking for XC singletrack, get in touch with us, and we’ll set up a one-of-a-kind MTB tour suited to your needs.

How we define XC: Anywhere from old logging or fire roads to rolling singletrack, Cross Country trails are generally long distances with both ascents and descents. While trails may be somewhat technical with rock gardens and tight switchbacks, they generally do not have intense steep rock gardens like those you might find in DH or Enduro racing.

An XC bike is often lighter with a slacker head tube angle for better climbing ability and tends to not have a dropper post although the trend is changing. Usually it will be a hardtail or a full suspension bike with a smaller amount of suspension — 100-130mm.  

Most XC riders do not wear pads such as elbow or knee pads and wear a half-shell helmet.


Our MTB expeditions are multi-day trips that involve camping, hiking and/or local home stays in the mountains with cooks and porters. At the moment Haku Expeditions offers one complete mountain expedition and also two packages that combine an MTB vacation with a smaller expedition nestled in it.

The front travel for DH bikes is usually somewhere around 200mm with the rear measuring slightly less. Because they generally aren’t pedalled uphill, these bikes are rugged and heavy and usually have less gears. DH riders wear full-face helmets, goggles, and body armor.

Downhill Riding

At the moment we do not offer a 100% DH trip. Contact us and we can make a custom trip for you! Below, you’ll find our Enduro MTB tours listed that are mostly all downhill and can be done either with a DH bike or an Enduro bike.

How we define DH: DH riding – or Downhill riding — is regarded as an intense, extreme kind of cycling, made for advanced riders who love to navigate roots and rocks and huge drops with furious downhill speed. It requires a stellar sense of balance and technique and a bike with slacker geometry. 

The front travel for DH bikes is usually somewhere around 200mm with the rear measuring slightly less. Because they generally aren’t pedalled uphill, these bikes are rugged and heavy and usually have less gears. DH riders wear full-face helmets, goggles, and body armor.

Enduro/All Mountain

Our Enduro/All-Mountain MTB tours are by far our most popular trips to date. While some of them focus more on descent like Ecuador and Peru, others include plenty of pedaling such as those in Colombia and Nepal.  

How we define Enduro/All Mountain: Enduro mountain biking, also known as All-Mountain biking, emphasizes technical ability. If you’re looking for a more adventurous ride, this is the kind of ride for you; usually, an Enduro/All-Mountain trail will involve adrenaline-pumping downhill mountain biking along with sustained climbs.

Enduro riders need bikes that can take burly drops and rugged technical obstacles efficiently while still being light enough to climb with; they almost always use full-suspension bikes with wide tires and longer rear and front suspension travel. Dropper post is a necessity and standard. The front suspension can be anywhere from 140mm to 170mm. Full-face enduro helmets and body amour are a must for Enduro racing.

General Fitness Ratings

1 – Getting your heart rate up isn’t really your thing, and you rarely (if ever) exercise. Your idea of a perfect vacation is total relaxation: sitting on a beach, sipping a mojito, and just generally vegging out. 

2 – You don’t necessarily work out regularly but you aren’t averse to the idea of doing something active. Although you don’t exercise that often, you don’t necessarily consider yourself out of shape.

3 – You exercise one to two times a week but do not have a normal schedule that keeps you biking or doing other activities weekly. You don’t go to the gym or train for any specific sports but you lead a relatively active lifestyle by biking, hiking, skiing, or whatever it may be. For biking: climbs and long descents give you some trouble and you tend to get tired after about 2-3 hours on the bike.

4 – You exercise 3-4 times a week and enjoy physical activities such as biking, hiking, skiing. You are active. For biking: you enjoy climbs that are are moderately long and being on a bike for 3-5 hours in one day doesn’t get you too tired or fatigued. 

5You exercise at least 4 times a week and are an avid athlete that is consistently in good shape. You’re more or less game for any kind of adventure. For biking: you’re comfortable with being on your bike for 5-7 hours a day. 

6 – You live and die for exercise, sweat, and suffering. You only want to climb higher, go farther, and prove how much of an animal you are. Steep climbs, long descents and big days are something you are looking to do more of and you can’t wait for your next adventure.
