Border Hopping for a 183 day visa in Peru.

Hi All,

My question is how to renew your visa for a 183 day visa, after entrance into Peru. I border hopped recently in Tacna, and the lady told me that the system wouldn't let her. My 100-day visa was about to expire in two days.

I know my friend bribed someone for a 183 day visa. Does anyone know how to do it?

Does anyone know a checkpoint - where this is easiest to do?

Your post is unclear.

What is your nationality? Are you in Peru now and want to stay longer? Did you leave Peru and were denied reentry? Who was "the lady"? Or is this situation all in the past tense?

No one here is going to recommend that you "bribe" a border official.

1) I'm American.

2) I had my visa renewed for 90 days, and I'm in Peru now.

3) The lady was border control

4) I just want to know how to get this mysterious 183 day visa - which twice I've been refused.

5) Why not bribe someone, if the price is cheap enough and wouldn't result in an agonizing border hop across another country?

Thanks for everything.

To answer your #5 , bribery is illegal. That's why.

As I understand it, the time to ask for the maximum 183 days is when you first enter Peru. It's entirely at the discretion of the immigration officer, but they can give it to you. Once you're in the country, it's not possible to extend, as you found out.

I was asking for advice. Do you have any?

Yes. Give up on your idea. It's too late to get the 183-day stay, and don't try to bribe anybody. It's illegal.
