Remember that your passport must be valid for at least another six months upon arrival in Ecuador. When you arrive in Ecuador, you get a T-3 visa stamp, which will allow you to stay in the country for 90 days. Do you plan to stay longer than 90 days? Please apply for a 12-IX visa at the Ecuadorian embassy in your home country, before you travel. This visa will cost you the local equivalent of $200 and will allow you to stay in the country for 180 days. Call your local embassy for current visa requirements.
Before leaving, consult your doctor for more information on required vaccinations and recommendations. Do not forget to bring the original of your yellow fever certificate and your vaccination card because they may ask you for them at the borders.
Make copies of your important documents and leave them with your contact person in your country. It’s also a good idea to scan your important documents and email them to yourself and your contact person in your country. This way, you will always have copies of the most important documents in your e-mail.
