Description

Great SOAT option! Go here.

Only SOAT that could make an insurance on a Saturday. Paid 26S for 1 month for Land Cruiser 1996.

They can quickly make insurance by the month for cheap. Why bother with anywhere else?

Picked up our SOAT here today, if you come from La Balsa where you can’t get a SOAT and you don’t want to wait 2 days to get one, send them your docs via WhatsApp a few days before crossing the border and then send the Aduana stamped TIP as soon as you cross… by the time you get here you will be ready for payment and your SOAT will be emailed to you a few hours later… saves spending 2 days in Jaen…
Their WhatsApp is +51 959 615 607, they are very friendly and helpful… I didn’t ask but I doubt they speak any English

Drove directly here from the border. Started the application process at 2pm. Was told we would receive it the next day between 4-5pm. But we actually received it at 6pm on the same day. Very nice! SOAT lady also very nice and patient.

209 SOL for 3 months for a 2018 Ford Transit van.

Camped out by the river for the night.

This seems to be the only office in Jaen that can issue insurance to foreigners. They used to be able to issue insurance right away, but the lady is telling us that now it takes 2 days. Since the pandemic, all policies are completed in the larger cities. We arrived at the office at 8am on Wednesday and we will get our insurance documents on Thursday at 4:00. The price is $279sol for three months (2018 Mercedes sprinter 170 extended). The office is right on the main highway with easy parking... even for bigger rigs.

For my motorcycle it’s 200 soles which is about $60 usd for 2 months! Was pricey, not as bad as Mexico. Easy to find just off the main road, another place I tried (recommended by a local) didn’t do tourist insurance. I figure from everything I read about other motorcycles soat that this price is average. Took about 20 minutes for one, no one was before us when we arrived. It did Not take HOURS!! Like other had said, and can pay at the location Not at a bank! Just come here, if you wanna get it done fast and efficient.

THE BEST PLACE TO GET SOAT - Almost overlooked this one- 1 Month SOAT for a 2003 Mitsubishi Montero Sport for 51Sol, parking outside, walked straight in and only took half an hour.

We were initially nervous about going as far as Jaen without a SOAT, but didn’t have a choice- we did get a police stop and just explained it was our only option. They were quite happy with this and let us pass.

We crossed the border at la Balsa and Aduana said go to Jaen to get insurance. We went to the fancy mapfre store that charges 45S per month per car. They charge 245S for one month for a motorcycle because motorcycles are more dangerous. This place does 1 month for a motorcycle for 100S.

They and NO other SOAT in town sells insurances on a monthly basis. We asked about the price for an annual package and the answer was sorry not for European vehicles.

They can't sell more SOAT for foreigners here. You have to go to the main office near plaza de armas.
