In these cases they are authorized to stay up to 90 days (extendable by Immigration authorities). Inquire with the Peruvian consular representation in your country if you need further information.

Currency and Denominations

The official currency of Peru is the Nuevo Sol (S/.) which is divided into 100 cents. Coins in circulation include the amounts of 5, 10, 20 and 50 cents, as well as 1, 2 and 5 Nuevos Soles. Paper bills come in 10, 20, 50, 100 and 200 Nuevos Soles.

US Dollars are accepted in most commercial establishments, restaurants and service stations, at the current exchange rate.

Most of the establishments accept the most popular credit cards, such as Visa, Master Card, Diners and American Express. Travelers' Checks are used with some limitations. Inquire at the establishment as to whether or not they are accepted. When paying with a credit card, make sure you are only paying the amount of the service or goods purchased.
