Updated Dec 2020:
We have some positive news! Machu Picchu will be re-open to all visitors from November 1st, 2020.
The Inca Trail 2D will also be open again in November at a capacity of 150 people per day.
We do not have confirmation as yet for the Classic Inca Trail 4D but we will keep you posted. There are vulnerable communities along this trail and they are being closely monitored by the Peruvian Government.
The minister has informed that only 675 people will be allowed inside Machu Picchu per day, which is 30% of its capacity pre-pandemic.
Visitors will enter in groups of 8, with a tour guide, and will need to maintain a distance of 1.5-2 meters apart. Visitors will only be permitted entry when accompanied by a professional guide and have their tickets booked through a registered travel agent, such as Killa Expeditions.
Currently, the country is only open to international visitors travelling from USA, UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Ecuador, Colombia, Panama, Chile, Paraguay, and Uruguay. They will be announcing more information soon regarding travellers from other international countries. This is not necessarily an exhaustive list – as more countries are added regularly. Please check the rules for your specific country to be sure.
Stay tuned for further updates 🙂
