The tasks of the embassy


Swiss travellers and residents of Switzerland still in Peru

We inform all travellers of Swiss nationality or resident in Switzerland that the Swiss Government has completed its repatriation programme. If you wish to return to Switzerland before the reopening of the Peruvian borders, we advise you to organize your trip independently.

Embassies like the Netherlands Embassy or the Spanish Embassy publish on their websites and social networks eventual news about special flights available with airlines (Iberia, KLM, AirEuropa,...). You can contact these airlines directly.

In case of medical emergency, please contact the Consulate by e-mail lima@eda.admin.ch or by phone.
