FIFA have elected to lift the sanctions imposed on the Peruvian Football Association that had seen the national team and club sides from the country suspended from international competition, it was announced on Saturday.
A statement released by world football's governing body simply stated that: "The Executive Committee has agreed to lift the suspension of the Peruvian Football Association."
Peru had initially been sanctioned due to a rift between the Peruvian Institute of Sports (IPD) and the country's football federation (PFP), in which the government department failed to recognise Manuel Burga as PFP president.
The two bodies submitted a signed agreement to FIFA supremo Sepp Blatter during the FIFA executive committee meeting in Tokyo, Japan, securing the continued participation of the country in qualifying for the 2010 World Cup.
The lifting of the ban will also come as good news to Peruvian club sides Universitario, Alianza Lima and Sporting Cristal, who had seen their 2009 Copa Libertadores places put at risk by the sanctions.
