What do I need to know before moving to Peru?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Peru, they said:

"Expats should be aware that Peru is a Spanish-speaking country, so it is important to learn some basic Spanish before moving. It is also important to research the cost of living in Peru, as it can vary greatly depending on the city and region. Additionally, expats should be aware of the cultural norms and customs in Peru, as they may be different from their home country. It is also important to research the visa requirements for Peru, as different types of visas may be required depending on the length of stay. Finally, expats should be aware of the healthcare system in Peru, as it may be different from what they are used to," remarked one expat in Peru.
