China-Peru FTA

Before importing, you need to establish a legal entity in Peru, which can be a company or sole proprietorship. Then register as an importer with the National Superintendency of Customs and Tax Administration (SUNAT). You will receive an Importer’s Registry Number (RUC).

After the implementation of the China-Peru Free Trade Agreement, China and Peru have joined hands in entering the “zero tariff era”.

Many Chinese products such as light industry, electronics, home appliances, machinery, automobiles, chemicals, vegetables, fruits, etc. and Peru’s fish meal, mineral products, fruits, fish and other products will benefit from the tariff reduction arrangement.
