Recent changes have been implemented, effected December 23, 2016, for appointed worker visas and work visas under an employment contract to a Peruvian company.

The requested duration of work in Peru must reflect the valid Service Agreement between the home and host country.  Previously, a foreign national was able to request a longer duration than the validity of the Service Agreement, though the visa would be issued to its validity.  These changes formalize the requirement now to request for the length of the Service Agreement.

Employment contracts that receive signatures other than persons titled “General Manager,” must now be accompanied by an affidavit from the Peruvian company that states the signatory has the power to sign such document on behalf of the company.  Previously, the Registrar Office would issue a certified copy of a Power of Attorney which was required before approval would be granted of the work contract.
