In 2001, the stock of Peruvian-born immigrants was the sixth largest amongst all Latin American immigrants to the UK.[1]

According to the 2001 UK Census, 4,066 Peruvian-born people were living in the UK.[1] As such, Peru was the 107th most common birthplace for UK residents, and sixth out of all Latin American countries, behind Mexico but ahead of Venezuela.[1] One "guesstimate" now puts the Latin American population of the UK at between 800,000 and 1 million, but puts the number of Peruvians in the UK at between 10,000 and 15,000. This is smaller than such communities in the UK as Brazilians, Colombians and Ecuadorians.[2] Countries such as the United States and Spain have much larger Peruvian communities than the United Kingdom.[1] Political stability in Peru, unlike for example Colombia and Ecuador, means that the number of Peruvians claiming asylum in the UK is low.[3]
