By building regulations, if you are planning to receive a visitor into the apartment, please consider the following recommendations:
- All visitors on arriving at the property, must register with the Front Desk (e.g., last-minute friend or pizza delivery).
- Guests will be required to sign in their visitors at the Front Desk where they will provide visitor information stating their name, apartment number and name of their visitor.
- The Front Desk Agent will collect an Identification card (Peruvian ID or Passport) from the visitor which will be kept at the Front Desk until the visitor is leaving. Please note that a valid identification card is required for each visitor for check-in/registration.
- On departure from the building, the visitor will return to the Front Desk where the agent will return their identification card.
Is it typical for residential buildings in Lima to require an identification card for each visitor that enters the building, even when accompanied by a building resident? Or is that only common in upscale apartments in Miraflores? Or is that very unlikely / rare regardless of the location and building?
