Ecuador welcomes people from all over the world who wish to visit for a short period of time or to establish a temporary residency, or a permanent residency. Most people do not require a visa prior to visit Ecuador for a stay of up to 90 days. Nonetheless, citizens (passport holders) from the following countries must obtain a visa at the Ecuadorian consulate of their jurisdiction:
- Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (North Korea)
All travelers must have the following:
- A passport with a remaining validity of at least 6 months beyond their travel dates.
- A round/onward trip ticket.
- Health insurance that will cover any health issues during their visit to Ecuador.
Having a visa or not needing one does not guarantee entry into Ecuador. At the port of entry, an Ecuadorian Customs Official will determine if the person is eligible to enter.
