A visitor’s visa is required for tourist visits to Ecuador. The first step to securing your tourist visa is preparing your visa application and submitting to the Ecuador Embassy/High Commission nearest to you. Your visa application will take roughly one to two weeks to be processed. The process of securing a residence permit (for travelers intending to stay permanently in Ecuador) is harder and takes longer. You might need to hire an Ecuadorian immigration attorney to help you navigate the process. When you first enter Ecuador, you will receive a T-3 tourist stamp in your passport, allowing you to stay in the country for 90 days. If you wish to stay more than 90 days within a year, you will have to go to an Ecuador consulate in your home country and apply for the 12-IX visa. Often referred to as the Tourist, Commercial or Sports Visa, this allows you to stay in the country for up to 180 days in a year. Even if you are planning to apply for permanent residence, you are required to have the 12-IX visa when you file your application. While both non-resident and tourist visas can keep you in the country for a while, only the resident visa will allow importation of your goods duty free. Also, the tourist visas given upon entry have cumulative time limits per calendar year that cannot be reset by leaving and entering the country. Resident visas can be obtained while in Ecuador on a tourist visa, but the process can be much simpler at consulate back home if you’re doing it yourself. If you’re using an attorney, the process is even easier, and they can deliver your visa to you here in Ecuador, or have it sent to you in your home country (via the consulate) before you depart. The resident visa grants permanent residence. That means you’ll be allowed to come and go from Ecuador as you wish. However, you can’t be absent from the country for more than 90 days per year during the first two years of your residence, nor more than 18 consecutive months after your second year of residence.
