Peruvian immigrants started arriving in Uruguay around 1990, mainly by land.[1] Both countries share the Spanish language; their historical origins are common (part of the Viceroyalty of the River Plate, Spanish Empire). The 2011 Uruguayan census revealed 1,433 people who declared Peru as their country of birth;[2][3] other sources state that there are some 2,000[4] to 3,000 Peruvians living and working in Uruguay, mostly in fisheries or as domestic servants.[1]

As of 2013, Peruvians represent one of the most dynamic immigration flows in Uruguay.[5][4] Yet most of them still live in poverty;[6] only 125 are registered in the Uruguayan social security.[7] Rather than fully assimilating into Uruguayan mainstream society, they tend to represent an example of multiculturalism.[1] Official sources show that over 1,600 Peruvians obtained their Uruguayan identification documents in 2016.[8]

In Montevideo operates the Uruguayan-Peruvian Cultural Association César Vallejo.[9]
