The Complexities of Importing into Peru
Although Peru invests only a small portion of its GDP in innovation (0.08%), its fast-growing economy and new government programs make it a country to watch. Of particular significance is the Tech industry which has seen significant advancements since the introduction of these programs. Other initiatives aimed at growing the country’s Technological footprint have focused on training locals in skills such as coding.
However, as with many other destinations across LATAM, Peru is not without its complications. Both second-hand and wireless goods are labeled as restricted items and require additional compliance. Although importing these is not impossible, the licensing required when shipping wireless goods can take up to three weeks to acquire, making importing a lengthy process.
