Working and living in Peru with the InterNations Expat Guide

Are you preparing for living and working in Peru? Or are you already an expat and have recently relocated to Lima, Iquitos or some other international Peruvian city?

The expat relocation to Peru is definitely an exciting international opportunity and cross-cultural adventure: Visiting the landscape such as the vast tropical forest of selva baja, getting to know how Peruvian folks celebrate Saint Rose of Lima, or acquiring a taste for Peru’s popular dishes like quinoa…

We certainly do not limit ourselves to Peru, though. Our guide includes many more expat hotspots, with advice ranging from living in Vietnam to living in Ireland.

Many questions come up when living overseas in Peru: ʺAre we, as expats, liable to Peruvian income tax law?ʺ, ʺCan you give me some tips on opening a small business in Lima?ʺ, ʺHow to find a trustworthy maid in Lima?ʺ, or ʺWhat are the requirements to get a Peruvian residence permit for my wife?ʺ
