Accounting for various “limitations and measures” due to the “state of health emergency declared by the Peruvian State due to COVID-19,” this measure contains provisions including: extending “the term of temporary or resident immigration status” that was first granted in March 2020, allowing “foreigners with an irregular immigration situation as of October 22, 2020 . . . [to] request their immigration regularization,” and “[g]rant[ing] a period of fifteen (15) calendar days” following the Resolution’s publication “to foreigners who have an exit order pending execution due to denial of their request for change or extension of migratory status, in order that they comply with leaving the national territory.”
