For part-time residents, Ecuador now offers foreign travelers the ability to spend six months out of every twelve months in Ecuador with no Visa required.
Ecuador also offers permanent resident visas to foreign investors and/or retirees. The process involves many steps, but is relatively easy. Getting a residence visa is a normal step in making Ecuador your first and second home. We recommend that you use an attorney for the process as the visa laws change frequently and you can easily miss required steps or documents. Our legal partners would be happy to assist you through the process. Alternatively, there are several services to help you through the process, just be sure to check references.
