Peru becomes a high-risk area again as of 16.01.2022
Unfortunately not very good news for all Germans traveling Perú, because from Sunday 16.01.2022 at 0 o’clock Perú belongs with some other countries again to the high risk areas. You can find the whole list and the measures here in the link.
Please note that due to the simultaneous travel warning of the German Foreign Office, the insurance coverage of some foreign health insurances is cancelled, check your insurance conditions in this regard, as this can become quite expensive for you if necessary.
