Entry Requirements for Ecuador & Galapagos

Passports & Visas

A valid passport is required to enter Ecuador. However, passports must be valid for six months and one day after you plan to leave Ecuador. No Visas are required for U.S., Canadian and most European citizens.  Visas are required for some Asian, Central American, Middle Eastern, and Eastern European countries. It is the passenger’s responsibility to check with local immigration offices or the Ecuadorian consulate prior to sailing to determine if a visa is necessary.

Effective October 20, 2022, visitors to Ecuador are no longer required to present a certification of vaccination for COVID-19 or a negative PCR or Antigen test result.

All visitors must complete a Traveler Health Declaration Form  (one per family) and present to customs upon arrival to Ecuador. Alternatively, a digital form (one per person) can be completed at the following link, https://declaracionsalud-viajero.msp.gob.ec/.

At check-in for AV flight 1630, a representative from Ecuador will assist you with your boarding pass, park entrance fee, and transit control card receipts if pre-paid.  You may be asked to present a return flight ticket and a medical insurance ID card.  Our crew will be waiting for you when you land to provide a safe and quick transfer to your yacht.
