Galapagos Travel Planner - Entry Requirements
Always check with your local embassy or consulate to determine whether or not you need a VISA for Ecuador (see our Ecuador travel planner for more info). A passport is a must, though, so be sure to get your papers settled before traveling abroad. It's smart to take photocopies of all important documents (passport, travel insurance, credit cards etc.) and keep them in a safe place apart from your originals.
To enter Ecuador only a valid passport is required. No visas are required for U.S., Canadian, and most European citizens unless you plan to stay more than ninety days. Check with local immigration offices or the Ecuadorian consulate prior to sailing to determine if a visa is necessary.
Visitors must have a current passport valid for more than three months, adequate funds to support themselves and a return ticket. Be sure to bring your C-card or proof of certification.
