What to expect when moving to Peru

Hello everyone,

Is there anything you wish you had known before moving to Peru? For example, transportation, internet speeds, types of housing, aspects of the culture or social life.

In your opinion, what's the most important thing to know about Peru?

When would you recommend someone should begin planning their move to Peru?

What were the most helpful ways you found to get organised? For example, did you use a checklist, were there any particularly useful websites or apps?

What advice would you give to future expats preparing to move to Peru?

Thank you for sharing your experience.


I wish I had researched obtaining a work visa or a more permanent visa then just a tourist visa. I foolishly believed it was quite simple to obtain a long term visa to stay in Peru. My Mistake! I found out that most companies want you to have a work visa before they will hire you.
