Protected Species of Flora and Fauna
Biodiversity is one of Peru's most valuable assets. Unfortunately, many species are in danger of extinction due to unauthorised exploitation and the cruel trafficking of wild animals.
Peruvian legislation forbids and punishes the removal, transportation, sale and export of any species of wild flora or fauna, alive or dead, without the corresponding authorisation.
Export Requirements for Animal Species
Archaeological and Historical Heritage
All original items of National Cultural Heritage are protected by Peruvian legislation, and their sale and export is forbidden.
With regards to replicas of pre-Hispanic and colonial artefacts (pottery, jewellery, stones, wood, textiles, paintings and others) it is necessary to obtain permission (“Certificate of export of goods not listed as National Cultural Heritage”) from the Ministry of Culture.
Purchase receipts or other documents issued by the seller indicating that the item is not listed as National Cultural Heritage are not valid.
