IMMIGRATION CARD - (article)

I just booked a room at Cuscotheir email confirmation states "Please do not forget to bring your immigration card that is inside your passport so that you are not required to pay IGV (General Sales tax) on top of your room fees." I don't have my passport on me because it's off being renewed but if I just bring my passport along, I should have this so called "immigration card" right? Or is this something separate? TIA!

ANSWER: When you enter Peru, you will fill in an 'immigration card' (ours was a white piece of paper). Yes, present it at any accommodation so as to avoid paying the tax and keep it with your passport for safety; so you know where it is!
