Peru, one of Australia's group rivals at the 2018 World Cup in Russia, have been fined for directing laser pointers at New Zealand players during their recent qualifying match in Lima.

Governing boy FIFA announced the Peruvian Football Association have been fined 5000 Swiss Francs ($A6,500) after investigating the intercontinental second leg match on November 15 which Peru won 2-0 to book a berth at next year's World Cup.

A disciplinary committee viewed footage of a green light flashing on several All Whites, most notably goalkeeper Stefan Marinovic, during the match.

Peru also copped a heftier fine of 7500 Swiss Francs ($A10,000) and a warning for the late issuing of their team sheet for the first leg match in Wellington four days earlier.

A warning was also issued for "pitch invasion by media and improper conduct among spectators" following the win in Lima.

Meanwhile, New Zealand were warned about two minor breaches.

The first was for a delayed kick-off in the Oceania Nations Cup final in June 2016.

The second was for supporters throwing paper darts during a World Cup qualifier against the Solomon Islands in Auckland in September this year.
