Foreign citizens are now required to use a new online system to upload and information relating to their immigration status.

Foreign citizens are now required to update and validate the data they have registered with the National Superintendence of Migrations and also include new information and documents requested using the following link.

This obligation applies to all foreign citizens who are in Peru and who have registered information with the National Superintendence of Migrations, including Venezuelan citizens who have applied for, or have obtained, a Temporary Residence Permit (PTP). It also applies to individuals who are in Peru and are not registered with the National Superintendence of Migrations.

When starting the data update procedure, applicants must enter their passport as an identifier. Data that has already been submitted to the National Superintendence of Migrations at the time of entering Peru or registered at the central immigration registry when the individual obtained their immigration status, and that has not changed since then must also be filled in, using the same information.

Finally, the National Superintendence of Migrations will oversee compliance with the requirement for updates. If a foreign citizen fails to update his or her information, the National Superintendence of Migrations can start verification and, if appropriate, impose sanctions.
