Peruvian citizens traveling up to three months to European countries within the Schengen space do not need a visa


Travelling in Europe is the European Union’s official website for people travelling in the 27 countries of the EU. Whether you are on holiday or on business, you will find practical advice and helpful tips on a wealth of subjects, from what documents you need, to getting healthcare and using your mobile phone. 

On 14 March 2016, the EU signed a short-stay Visa waiver agreement with Peru at a ceremony in Brussels.

There is so much to discover in the European Union. You can move freely from one country to another within Europe. Because of the Schengen Agreement, it is possible to cross many borders within the EU without controls. Also, with the addition of the Euro in eighteen countries, the cost and the inconvenience of having to change currencies have been eliminated. 

There are thirty-nine countries, including Peru, whose citizens do not require a Visa to visit the EU for a period of up to three months.

Study in Europe

Erasmus + is the EU's program to support education, training, youth and sport in Europe that offers study, experience and volunteer opportunities

Who can participate? 


Erasmus+ is open to many people and organizations, although the admission criteria vary according to the type of action and the country. 

Individuals (individuals, students or teaching staff) can participate in many Erasmus + funded opportunities, although most do so through an organization participating in the program. The admission criteria for individuals and organizations depend on the country where they are based. 

As a partner country, Peru can only participate in some Erasmus + actions and under certain conditions. 

For more information on admission criteria, see the specific opportunities pages for individuals and organizations and the Program Guide. 

How is it managed? 

The Erasmus + program is administered by the European Commission, the Executive Agency in the field of Education, Audiovisual and Culture (EACEA) and a series of national agencies in the program countries and some associated countries.
