The Consular Section is located in the Embassy premises (Av. Salaverry 3006, San Isidro, Lima Tel: 51-1-4602289 / 2616006 / 4610371, Fax: 51-1-4610374, e-mail: consular@indembassy. org.pe).

India does not permit dual citizenship. All Indian Citizens who have taken up Peruvian/Bolivian citizenship, automatically lose their Indian citizenship. Such persons should therefore surrender their Indian passports to the Embassy on taking up foreign citizenship. Failure to do so or attempting to get passport services even after taking up foreign citizenship is an offence under the Passports Act, 1967, and can lead to penalties, including a ban on all future entry into India.
All resident Indian nationals in Peru and Bolivia are encouraged to register online.
According to new immigration regulations, the entry stamp from the immigration authorities indicating the date of entry in Peru on the passport is mandatory. In the case of loss/issue of new passport, all foreigners are required to get their immigration entry stamp affixed, after paying the requisite fees, on the new passport before departure from Peru. The procedure could be completed at Department of Immigration and Naturalization – DIGEMIN, Services for Foreigners Ave. España 730, Breña, Tel 2001000.
A biometric enrolment procedure, comprising of taking a webcam facial image and a 10-digit fingerprint scan, has been introduced by the Embassy for all visa applicants between the ages of 12 and 70.
