We dared to look towards the horizon. A New Year, new adventures and our compass, the sun itself, guiding us along the route of the sun. We were looking for hope and the idea of there being light at the end of this dark tunnel. With the development of the Covid-19 vaccine, our hearts have skipped a beat, reminding us of the character and the spirit of the people, to achieve this positive change. The perfect example that human beings can accomplish anything they set out to do!
With the same commitment as always to our clients, here at Valencia Travel, we are optimistic and full of hope for what is to come in this new year and are looking forward to a positive2021.
Here is our update about the current situation in Perú:
Covid 19: Travel Updates Perú
- The director of International health clarified that the 14-day quarantine necessary to enter Peru may be completed in the traveller's final destination, not on the entrance to the country. The strict hygiene protocols, as dictated by the Health Minister, will be enforced with social distancing, obligatory masks and frequent hand disinfecting.
- The quarantine can be completed in the homes or hotels of the traveller, once they have reached their final destination. These arrangements should be printed out and shown to the officials on the entrance to the country.
- A negative Covid PCR test is required not older than 72 hours, to be able to enter the country.
- For anyone entering Peru, from a country where the new strain of the Covid 19 has been detected, we recommend that you take a specialised test in Lima. It is still unclear if these passengers can take the test the same day as they arrive in Lima or in their final destination.
- As of the 6th of January, all flights that have a duration of 8 hours or more, will be suspended for a period of 15 days with the aim of preventing the spread of the new strain of Covid -19.
We prioritise the safety and wellbeing of all our travellers, local experts, staff and suppliers, through a safe and responsible operation. We have worked extensively on our health and safety policies, and we are implementing new minimum standards that emphasise increased hygiene and sanitation.
All this is based on the recommendations of the World Health Organization and is following the Safe Travel protocols of the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) for tour operators. Before travelling, we recommend that you check your government's travel advisory and the World Health Organization website for the most up-to-date information on destinations and permitted trips from each country.
