You can apply for an Investor visa if you intend to engage in a business in Peru.
To be qualified for the Investor visa, you must invest at least PEN500,000 in a Peruvian firm or establish a Peruvian company with a capital investment of the same amount, according to the new Immigration Law (Legislative Decree N° 1350), which has been in effect since March 2017. A stock transfer will not be considered an investment.
The investment must be a one-way bank transfer made on your behalf directly from a bank account.
You may also be needed to submit a business plan that has been assessed as viable by a local professional economist.
You may only be permitted to work as a Manager or Director of your company, in which case you must adhere to all applicable labor and tax laws.
Your dependents can apply for a family visa once you’ve received the visa.
The investor visa is valid for one year and can be renewed if you can show that you have kept the investment, hired at least five Peruvians, and stayed in Peru for at least 183 days during the year.
After two years of lawful residence in Peru, you may be eligible for citizenship if you can demonstrate ties to the country, such as the rental or purchase of residential property, that you have been residing there for the entire time, and that you are fluent in Spanish.
Photocopy of the affidavit of the establishment of the Public Registry in which the interested party has spent a minimum of PEN500,000 in cash, legalized by a notary or authenticated by the Peruvian General Directorate of Immigration and Naturalization (DIGEMIN).
– In the event of a newly formed firm, a feasibility study of its business or, in the case of an existing company, a two-year business plan that includes the creation of five jobs for Peruvian nationals within the first year of operation.
