I am in a situation where I booked my flight from Europe to Peru and where I am stuck in the visa process because of a missing document that will apparently still take some time to be ready. I am starting to consider an alternative to Peru in case I don't get the visa in time. I am a Tunisian citizen living in Germany and the embassy here says it takes 6 weeks to issue a tourist visa (I fly in 4 weeks). Next to Peru, there are Brazil and Ecuador, countries for which I don't need visas.
If a book a ticket from Lima (where I land in Peru) to Quito for example, will I be able to board from Europe by showing them that I directly fly to Quito after landing in Peru? Is a direct transfer to Lima airport possible (like in the European airports).
The logic behind that is that I already booked the flight for Peru so if I don't get the visa in time, it would be a big waste of money. So investing a bit more in an additional ticket from Peru to Ecuador for example and visiting Ecuador instead would be a solution.
I am also applying for a Bolivian visa in the mean-time, because I plan to visit it as well. Would it be possible to fly to Bolivia from Lima directly and apply for the Peruvian visa there?
