Peru introduces new 10-year passports

Effective 7 May 2024, Peruvian nationals aged 18 years or above will be eligible to obtain ordinary passports that are valid for 10 years. Peruvian nationals between the ages of 12 and 17 will be eligible for ordinary passports that are valid for five years. Those under the age of 12 will be eligible for passports with a validity period of three years. Amendments to Peru's immigration laws, including the extended validity period for passports, were introduced in 2023. However, the Peruvian authorities only recently confirmed implementation of the changes regarding passport validity.
