The Court of Arbitration for Sport has upheld an appeal by the World Anti-Doping Agency to extend Guerrero's six-month Federation Internationale de Football Association ban, which expired this month.
Guerrero's absence will be a significant blow for Peru who have qualified for their first World Cup in 36 years and face Denmark, France and Australia in their Group C.
He had tested positive for benzoylecgonine in October a year ago during their qualifying game against Argentina.
Announcing the extension of the ban now ending in January 2019, CAS said it was the most appropriate course of action considering Guerrero's degree of fault in the matter.
The forward was originally banned from all FIFA competitions for a year, which would have kept him out of Russia had the ban not been reduced by FIFA, after an appeal, to six months.
The Peruvian Football Federation have officially confirmed that captain Paolo Guerrero has been chosen in the Peru national football team's FIFAWorld Cup 2018 squad following the expiration of a narcotics ban. They questioned the CAS's intentions for the ban despite admitting that Guerrero was not significantly negligent and his intention was not to enhance his performance.
Guerrero was serving a suspension when Peru beat New Zealand 2-0 over two legs in last November's intercontinental World Cup play-off.
Despite acknowledging Guerrero had no intention of taking a banned substance - his lawyer argued the stimulant was consumed by drinking contaminated tea - CAS ruled in line with WADA's wishes.
"However, the Panel considered that the Player did bear some fault or negligence, even if it was not significant, and that he could have taken some measures to prevent him from committing the [doping violations]".
Guerrero - of Bayern Munich, Hamburg and Corinthians fame - is Peru's all-time leading goalscorer with a record of 32 strikes in 86 appearances.
The striker, also Peru's highest-ever scorer, returned to play for Flamengo earlier this month and scored his first goal since the suspension on Sunday.
