The Head of State said that Peru will be strict in that passengers entering our country have to come with their negative molecular test.
“Miles of passengers have come this season that opened international travel and a few, dozens, have entered without molecular testing, we are not going to allow it. We are going to be much more strict and we will coordinate with the airlines because if someone arrives without their molecular test, we will immediately put them on the plane back to their place of origin ”, he said.
“Flights of up to eight hours can come, but with the corresponding molecular test that guarantees that they will not come with the virus,” he added.
Currently, four-hour international flights are allowed to the following 11 destinations: Guayaquil and Quito, (Ecuador), La Paz and Santa Cruz (Bolivia); Bogotá, Cali and Medellín (Colombia); Panama (Panama), Asunción (Paraguay), Montevideo (Uruguay), Santiago (Chile).
