Original passport: Peruvian hotels, trains, archaeological sites, and other services require “proof of non-residency” by asking you to present your foreign passport upon check-in. If you cannot produce your foreign passport with the Peruvian immigration entry stamps and your tourist card, you will be asked to pay the applicable additional sales tax (an additional 18%). A copy of your passport is not permitted. Please ensure you carry your passport with you during the tour.
