The Peruvian Ministry of Transportation and Communications (MTC) has announced that flights from South Africa will remain suspended from November 1 to 31 in order to reduce infection risks posed by new COVID-19 variants.
This was established by Ministerial Resolution No. 1093-2021-MTC/01 published in the Official Gazette El Peruano last Saturday.
The latest extension is part of the actions taken to attend to the current sanitary emergency caused by the pandemic.
In this sense, the MTC calls on citizens to continue following guidelines with the aim of preventing the spread of COVID-19 in air transportation.
Likewise, health authorities have indicated that passengers of international flights entering Peru must wear a double face mask.
Furthermore, they must present proof of a negative molecular test result taken no more than 72 hours prior to the boarding, as well as fill out an affidavit online during the 72 hours prior to the trip.
