Through this device, the guidelines for the grant of the Temporary Residence Permit for people of Venezuelan nationality are approved.

The purpose of these guidelines is to establish the procedure for granting temporary residence permit for one year to persons of Venezuelan nationality, who have entered the national territory until December 31, 2018.

In addition, it is established that the deadline for submitting the application for the Temporary Residence Permit (PTP) is until June 30th, 2019.

Likewise, it is stated that in order to process the PTP, the applicant must comply jointly or concurrently with certain conditions, such as: having entered the national territory until December 31, 2018; find themselves in the country in an irregular migratory situation as a result of the expiration of their authorization of permanence or residence, or that, being in a regular migratory situation, they opt for the aforementioned permit; and not having a police, criminal and / or judicial background at national and international level.

Regarding to the labor regime, it is regulated that the granting of the PTP empowers the beneficiary to work formally within the framework of Peruvian legislation. That is why the Immigration Office in Peru will communicate to the Ministry of Labor and Employment Promotion about the permit, in order to free the beneficiary of the PTP from restrictions of an employment nature.
