Completing the Peruvian citizenship naturalization process requires three visits to Lima, the Peruvian capital, over a period of 30 months. On every visit to Peru, our Senior Consultants will assist the customer step by step through the entire process.
The first visit to Lima is to receive the residency card (Carnet de Extranjeria) and requires only ten (10) working days.
Residents can spend as little or as much time as desired in Peru during the 24-month residency period. During the course of this process, customers can use their Peruvian permanent residency card to travel visa-free elsewhere throughout Latin-America.
