Passengers on special flights must present a negative molecular test

It will be part of the procedure to enter Peru from abroad

This morning, the Technical Guide to the protocol for the attention of travelers entering and leaving Peru on special flights was published. This guide establishes the necessary procedures for the entry of passengers to the country and the biosecurity measures that they must comply with before boarding and at the time of disembarkation. In this regard, it was determined that all passengers on special flights entering the country must present a document proving a negative result in the molecular test for COVID-19.

According to the document, the rule establishes that in the case of passengers traveling on special support missions to the country, previously coordinated by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, they must present a document that proves a negative result in the molecular test for COVID-19 at the time of disembarkation in Peruvian territory.

Likewise, it is established that a clinical or epidemiological discharge certificate may also be presented. In this way, the regulation provides that the document to be presented must be issued in the country of origin or provenance of the passenger and must be no older than three days prior to the trip.

It is important to note that, as defined by the technical guidelines, a special flight is considered to be any flight that has been authorized by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in coordination with the Directorate General of Civil Aviation during the closure of borders under Supreme Decree No. 045-2020-PCM.

Similarly, passengers must pass other types of controls at the Jorge Chávez terminal such as temperature measurement (which will be operated by LAP and monitored by health personnel). Travelers who do not present symptoms will be subject to a 14-day quarantine at their home or hotels of preference. On the other hand, those who do present symptoms will be evaluated by a doctor, who will make a diagnosis and depending on the result will be transferred to the required health center.
