One tip to remember is that speaking Spanish will help you greatly. You'll be treated differently than if you speak English all the time, it'll help you assimilate to Peru, and it'll make talking to the immigration officers easier.

***Be sure you ask at immigrations about your visa as rules and fees seem to change often.***
This visa is ONLY for those on a tourist or student visa.
A permission to sign a contract visa is useful if you want to sign contracts, whether they be for work or to purchase things, such as vehicles or property. This visa is not a work visa! It just lets you legally sign contracts. You can find information at Migraciones. It's called "permiso para firmar contratos". Here's what you'll need.
- Form F007.
- Pay the fee for the form and do change your visa status at the Banco de la Nacion
- Your passport
- Your TAM / Andean Card (embarkment card). If lost it, you will have to replace it.
