hello Ms. Melvi or shall i say Mrs..  :)  i would like to know how is Employment there in Peru. Is there any chance that i could find a job there? I am currently here in Cyprus and my contract and visa will soon lapse. I found on the net that we Philippine citizens has visa exemption for 183 days. I need information hope you will help me with this. Thank you..  :)  :)

Hi Joanna, Here have many jobs that you can aply if you know some spanish language, also about english speakers workers, check at:

If you want to work in Peru you will need a special visa called “el Carné de extranjeria” which could be translated as “Foreign Resident ID Card”. With the Carné de extranjeria you are allowed to work in Peru and you don’t have a limit on the number of days you can stay. However you will need to pay $20 US Dollars a year and an initial fee of $200 US Dollars.

Other than being married to a Peruvian or having Peruvian family, to apply for the Carné de extranjeria you will need to have a contract with a company that wants to hire you. The contract must be for a year minimum. Unfortunately it is more complicated for companies to hire a foreigner than to hire a Peruvian and they are only allowed to hire a certain amount of foreigners to their company.

If you find a way to get hired, then you need to fill in this form: https://www.migraciones.gob.pe/formularios/f-007-a.pdf and pay $49.90 USD to the Banco de la Nacion. You will bring the receipt of your payment together with a copy of your passport and a copy of you TAM card (the paper you received at the airport when entering Peru).

Next you book an appointment with INTERPOL where you take an exam and pay the fee of $200 USD at the Banco de la Nacion and an additional of $20 USD for an inscription in the “Foreigners Register”.

You will also need to hand in 2 photos in “tamaño carnet” size (similar to passport size but ask at the place where you take your photos for “tamaño carnet”). Finally, you also need to fill in this document. This ensures that you haven’t committed any criminal activities in Peru or in any other country.

Please note that if you are applying for the Carné de extranjeria as a family member to an officer, due to a religious commitment in Peru or as a refugee, the conditions are different.

Also note that the process of applying for the Carné de extranjeria can be a bit complicated and the procedure is not always the same for everyone so make sure that you ask about the details of the procedure at the immigration office. Not all speak English so if you aren’t fluent in Spanish make sure you bring someone who can translate for you.

Sa Miraflores po, I'm still looking for a Job as a teacher.  Hoping to find one.

Is it hard to settle down there if you're not married to a Peruvian?

Hi Nicah. Not really, but it is better to live in Peru if you have a job, just like in any other country.

Hello to all.  I was born in the Philippines but my parents are American and I have lived in Peru for 13 years.  I looked for this forum because I have always wanted to go back to the Philippines and now after researching it some really want to put the effort into making that dream a reality.  I figured the best place to start would be making some contacts with (real) Filipinos.  I met some girls on the street a couple of times who were part of some big christian church in the Philippines who ask for money for an orphanage or something and was surprised to learn that there are some Filipinos here in Peru.  I forgot where their meetings are though.  If anyone knows who that group is please let me know.  Also, if anyone wants information about Peru I have been here a long time and probably know.  I would like to meet some people in the Filipino community here.  I live currently in Miraflores.

Hi, it's good to know that there is a Filipino who got married there. Currently I have Peruvian bf online and hopefully someday we can meet up if this relationship goes well. And I want to asked some info on how you process paper to get your wife there. Thanks and best regards

you don`t need a visa to come to Peru.  Just come over and you get a 90 to 180 tourist visa.  If you overstay your visa it is no problem...just pay a dollar a day fine and cross the border and come right back a minute later.  I have lived here for 13 years and done it many times.  Very lax on immigration here in Peru.

Is it easy to get a job there since I am not a college degree holder. Is there any agency you can recommend ? Because I am planning to find job while having that tourist visa. Thanks for your kind reply and best regards.

well, you write English very well so I am sure you could get a job as an English teacher.  What other skills do you have?  It is true what one of the first posts says something about the somewhat difficult process for getting legal residency and working on the books for a formal company.  However, I have lived here most of the 13 years continuously without legal residence and never worked on a formal payroll.  It is actually cheaper to work off the books and cross the border every six months than be in the system and pay taxes.

So tell me what other skills you have and I can tell you more.  I may have some contacts for you and maybe you could have some contacts for me.

Hi Alma,
Good luck about love relationship with your peruvian boyfriend. The facts, trust, the evidences of love and the time will make it sure and strong your relationship. Take a schedule, take a budget, a plan.
The first job that any English speaker thinks to perform is English teacher, here virtual or real English institutes eventually need it. Also foreign and national companies for eventual projects. Also little Pinoy companies, Even you can start your own little business.
If you want a formal yearly contract and a work visa, that's a process and it takes from 2 months or more.

Regards,
Melvi.
