For entry into Ecuador, you must have a full passport that has at least 6 months remaining validity. Citizens of European Union countries, USA, Australia and Canada do not require a visa if the intended stay in Ecuador is less than 90 days. A tourist card will be issued on arrival at Quito. Nationals of other countries should check the prevailing situation with the Ecuadorian consulate.
Passengers intending to travel via the USA, please note the following:
Your passport must have a machine readable bar code if you are transiting through the US. You must complete an online application form to travel to, or transit through the USA.
Under the new Electronic System for Travel Authorisation (ESTA), all travellers, including children, from the 27 countries under the US visa waiver programme will have to fill out an electronic travel authorization form online (esta.cbp.dhs.gov) prior to boarding any US-bound aircraft or ship. You can also use this site to check whether your country is part of the visa waiver scheme.
You will be required to answer questions about criminal records, communicable diseases, past history of visa revocation or deportation, and basic biographical data such as name, birth date and passport information. Changes in address and itinerary can be made online after the ESTA form has been first submitted.
You will not be allowed to board any US bound aircraft without completing the online ESTA form.
If you have a criminal record (including criminal driving offences), you will be required to obtain a visa in advance of entering or transiting the USA.
We do keep our information up to date but be advised visa requirements are subject to change. It is recommended that you contact the relevant commission in the case of recent alterations.Print Page
