What is a Passport?

It's an internationally recognized official identification document required for individuals wishing to travel outside the country.

Freedom of Movement:

Having an updated passport provides you with the freedom to travel to different countries without restrictions. Some examples of situations where an expired passport can cause issues include delays in international travel and even being denied entry to places you intend to visit.

It's important to plan ahead for passport renewal before traveling abroad. Airlines suggest at least 6 months of validity to enjoy your travels without any issues.

Regarding Personal Security:

  • A valid passport is essential in emergency and crisis situations abroad.
  • Keeping digital or physical copies of your passport in case of loss or theft will help in identification.

Additional Considerations:

Stay informed about the specific requirements of each country for passport renewal.

It's important to have your passport renewed at least 6 months before embarking on a trip.

Keeping your passport updated is more than just bureaucratic formality; it's a vital measure to protect your freedom and security in an increasingly connected world. Don't underestimate the importance of this document and make sure to renew it on time to enjoy hassle-free travel and be prepared for any eventualities abroad.

Of course, it largely depends on the destination you're heading to, so it's important to review the entry requirements of each country.

Furthermore, traveling with medical insurance is very important, something that many people forget to arrange before starting a trip. But that won't happen to you because if you're reading this, it's because you want to prepare your trip as best as possible and enjoy it without having to worry about documents, insurance, and other procedures.

What countries can you visit with your Peruvian passport?

As a Peruvian, you can travel to 74 countries without needing a visa, just with your passport or ID:

In South America:

Peruvians have the opportunity to travel to Bolivia, Colombia, and Ecuador due to agreements within the Andean Community of Nations (CAN), which allow Peruvians to travel with only their National Identity Document (DNI). Additionally, there are Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Paraguay, Uruguay, Venezuela, Suriname, and Guyana, countries we can visit thanks to bilateral agreements that exempt the use of a passport for tourism trips.

In Central America and the Caribbean:

We recommend visiting countries like Aruba, Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Bonaire, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Jamaica, Panama, Dominican Republic, Trinidad and Tobago, Saba, and San Eustatius, countries where you can save and travel safely just by presenting your ID!

In North America:

An almost essential destination is Mexico, which has had various destinations you can visit without needing a visa since 2012.

Unmissable Europe:

Thanks to agreements with the European Union, we have access to more than 30 must-visit countries for family trips if you have the opportunity. Among these are: Germany, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Croatia, Denmark, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Estonia, Finland, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Malta, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Czech Republic, Romania, Sweden, and Switzerland. 

You can also travel to the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland.

If you want to go to the other side of the world, no problem!

Asia and the Middle East as an option for Peruvians:

Thanks to agreements made by the Peruvian Government, we have Turkey and Ukraine, as well as Bangladesh, Brunei, Republic of Korea, United Arab Emirates, Hong Kong, Philippines, Indonesia, Israel, Lebanese Republic, Malaysia, Maldives, Mongolia, Qatar, Singapore, and Thailand.

Why is it important to have an updated passport?

Many doubts exist regarding the classic question: Should I renew my passport or not? Whether we are busy with trip preparations or eagerly thinking about the places we will visit, we probably forgot the main travel document: the passport.

To transit to the main destinations in the world such as Europe or the United States, and even Peru, it's necessary to have a passport with a minimum validity of 6 months before the trip concludes. For example, if the expiration date is 6 months or more, there won't be any restrictions for the trip; however, if you have fewer months of validity, you should consider renewing it as soon as possible.

Conclusions

This requirement is mostly established by countries that require visas, among other things. The intention of having an updated passport is mostly to have migratory control and to adhere to the rules of each country regarding their migration laws.

Without going too far, to visit Machu Picchu, it's necessary to have a valid passport as it will be checked in the control area. While it's true that some CAN community countries can enter normally with their identification, it doesn't hurt to have a valid and current passport.
