Apply for a work visa before arriving? (Lima)


Hi everybody :)

I've been offered a job in Lima starting mid July. I've read a few things about how to obtain the visa while you are in the country already, on a tourist visa.

Can/Should I already apply now while I am still outside of the country?
(I am a German citizen but residing in Mexico right now and will straight go to Lima)

If I apply from within the country could I start working for the company without having the official work permit yet?

Thanks for any help!
