Visa & Passport
In 2008, the President of the Republic changed the regulations so that citizens of any nationality were allowed to enter Ecuador without a visa and stay for a period of ninety days in a chronological year so as to strengthen relations between Ecuador and all countries of the world and promote tourism. However, since then, visa requirements have been instated for citizens of Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Nepal, Nigeria, Pakistan, China and Somalia. Chinese citizens can get a no-visa-required stamp if they are Canadian or American permanent residents (there could be more exceptions). Members of the Andean Community may enter with only a national ID card and do not require a passport.
Ecuador requires that Cuban citizens receive an invitation letter prior to entering Ecuador through international airports or frontier admission points. This letter must be legalized by the Ecuadorian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and comply with certain requirements. These requirements are designed to provide an organized migratory flow between both countries. Cuban citizens who are US green card holders should visit an Ecuadorian Consulate to obtain an exemption to this requirement.
Your passport must be valid for at least 6 months beyond your travel dates. A round/onward trip ticket is needed to prove the length of your stay.
