The exchange student visa is mandatory for all incoming students. In order to begin this process, the International Relations Office at Universidad del Pacífico will request important documentation detailed at the application web site and send it to The Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Peru. Once the visa is approved, students will receive a confirmation e-mail. The visa approval process usually takes between 2 to 6 weeks.
Please consider that the visa issuance process is carried out by The Peruvian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, not by Universidad del Pacifíco. Moreover, the timing for the visa application process does not include tourism activities or others prior to the beginning of the semester. For this reason, we ask you to not engage in other types of traveling prior to getting their visas approved.
