When sending money to Peru, keep in mind that different tax regulations may apply to sending large sums of money overseas depending on many factors including:

  • how the money is going to be used
  • how much you are sending
  • the source of the funds
  • if the money has been taxed elsewhere

For example, supporting family members by paying for living expenses is usually considered different from sending large sums of money abroad as a gift. See our Guide to Sending Money to Family Abroad for more details.

How to send money to Peru at a great exchange rate

When looking at exchange rates, it’s important to know that the value of the Peruvian nuevo sol (PEN) may be affected by the country’s free-floating exchange rate regime, which is based on demand and supply compared to foreign currencies. However, the government will sometimes intervene to provide stability when necessary.
