* Validity: 6 years,

* Cost: € 63 euros

Cash payment is not accepted. It is only possible to pay by debit card from a local bank (PIN) at the Consulate offices.

The passport will be delivered in approximately 10 working days. Anyone with the payment receipt can approach to withdraw the passport. People who wish to send by certified mail, must deliver a pre-paid envelope.



Present yourself with your passport at the Consulate. In case the passport has been stolen, a complaint is required to the police along with the copy of an Ecuadorian identity document with photo. If the complaint to the police is not possible, an affidavit will be made at the Consulate (cost € 13.50 euros).


Minors require authorization and presence of both parents at the Consulate to obtain the passport. In case one of them cannot attend the Consulate, a Power of Attorney (POA) is needed. If a parent does not know the whereabouts of the other parent, a proof of the sentence of a judge of the Court of Children and Adolescents is needed. This procedure is carried out in Ecuador.

If a minor born abroad, will obtain the passport for the first time, the Ecuadorian birth registration must be submitted.
