Peru: Work Permits/Visas
Peru has a variety of schools and businesses that operate throughout the country. Lima is the major hub of business and also has the majority of undergraduate and graduate schools. As a result, there is a lot of international traffic going to and from the country. The visa process is generally straightforward but be sure to begin the visa application process in well in advance of any travel dates. Also, it is possible to work in Peru while there as a student, but it is necessary to find an employer that is willing to offer its support in order to obtain a business visa.
