We report here the first genome sequence of Avian  infectious laryngotracheitis virus isolated in Peru, from tracheal tissues of layer chickens. The genome showed 99.98% identity  with the genome sequence of strain J2. Likewise, single nucleotide polymorphisms were detected in five gene sequences, related to vaccine development, virus attachment, and viral immune evasion.
