Hi Keli, Good news - the government has dropped its two-week self-quarantine requirement for in-coming tourists as long as they present negative results on a Covid-19 test. My recommendation is still to wait to have family come and visit. For more info, here is the article in Spanish: https://www.eltelegrafo.com.ec/noticias/sociedad/6/coe-aislamiento-preventivo-pasajeros-covid/

Hi Keli, Welcome to Quito! After your quarantine is up, I hope it will be a little easier to explore Quito's wonders. Unfortunately, there is really not an end in sight for a lot of the pandemic rules and regulations. it seems one of the few ways to contain this virus is to follow strict social distancing guidelines. While there are often rumors that the mandatory quarantine will be lifted, there have been no announcements that counter the current guidelines. I would expect them to stay in place at least a few more weeks if not months. In fact, the...

Hi Miguel, First things first - no, you cannot request more than one 90-day visa extension. This visa is intended for tourism and Ecuador believes that if you are coming back year after year to stay, you are not a tourist. Repeat visitors who want to stay for longer are encouraged to look into other solutions like the one you mentioned - the investor visa or residency visas. We're not versed in all the options Second, I think it might be worthwhile to write your closest Ecuadorian consulate and ask for their suggestions. The consulate in Los Angeles offered us...

What a wonderful story! I would love to see the shawls you have. I know that the styles have slowly changed over time and I find it very interesting to see the different colors and patterns. I hope you are writing down these memories. It's so important to preserve them!

Thank you, mi querida Jacquie, for teaching me even more about the wonderful Inti Raymi celebrations that take place near your home! I have watched the dancers of Tabacundo at different events over the years and never realized that they have a special celebration all their own called La Noche San Pedrina. I love that you have started writing for us because it means that I will never stop learning about all that Ecuador has to offer! I can't wait to read your next article.

You are a doll to offer such a wonderful gift. Let me reach out to you via email so we can discuss this a little further. I've never been offered a portrait before and the idea is very intriguing!

Hi Rudymiel, We had a local Ecuadorian call the Migration Office for you. They suggested that you send an email to servicios.migratorios@ministeriodegobierno.gob.ec with your question.

Hi John, you are definitely not the only person worried about this. From what we understand, as long as Ecuador is under a State of Emergency, you will be fine to leave without being charged a fine. If the State of Emergency is lifted before your flight on July 1st, you would still be okay as tourists will have 30-days to be compliant. Just this week, President Moreno declared a new State of Emergency expected to last for 2 months (August 15, 2020). If you want to get this from an official source, you can email servicios.migratorios@ministeriodegobierno.gob.ec with your question.
