What is a Green Card?
A Green Card is an identification card issued to immigrants who are authorized to live and work in the United States. The card is also known as a Permanent Resident Card or Alien Registration Card. If you have a Green Card, you are considered a permanent resident of the United States.
Who is eligible for a Green Card?
To be eligible for a Green Card, you must be sponsored by a family member or employer who is a Green Card holder or a U.S. citizen, and you must have a job offer from a U.S. employer. You can also be eligible for a Green Card if you are a refugee or asylee, or if you meet certain special circumstances.
How to apply for a Green Card?
If you are a permanent resident of the United States (also known as a “green card holder”), you may travel outside the United States and return, as long as you have your green card with you. However, if you plan to be away for more than one year, you will need to get a reentry permit before you leave.
If you are not a U.S. citizen, but you have a green card, you should carry your passport with you when you travel, in addition to your green card. This will help ensure that you can return to the United States if your green card is lost or stolen while you are away.
What are the benefits of having a Green Card?
As a Green Card holder, you are allowed to live and work permanently in the United States. You can also travel freely in and out of the country, providing you meet the requirements for doing so. In addition, you are eligible for certain government benefits, such as Social Security and Medicare.
What are the requirements for traveling to Peru with a Green Card?
If you are a permanent resident of the United States (i.e., you have a Green Card), you do not need a visa to enter Peru.

It is also important to note that, as a Green Card holder, you are not allowed to stay in Peru for more than 183 days in any given year. If you plan to stay in Peru for longer than that, you will need to apply for a tourist visa.
