Visas

General Information

While no foreigners need a visa to enter Ecuador for a period of 90 days, for tourism purposes, in order to stay in the country for a longer period, a VISA must be obtained from an Ecuadorian Embassy or Consulate after complying with the requirements established by law. Citizens of Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Nepal, Nigeria, Pakistan and Somalia require a visa to enter Ecuador.

The types of available Non-Immigrant Visas, with their respective requirements, subject to admission, validity of visas, fees and requirements for renewal, can be found below. Foreigners must submit and comply with all required documentation, without exception, in order to choose one of the immigration categories.
