4 min read
Updated on May 14, 2024

There is an incredible place in Ecuador, located in the Pacific Ocean about one-thousand kilometers away from the coast of Ecuador’s mainland where we can find the Galapagos Islands, a group of nineteen islands with a beauty that seems almost out of this world. The Galapagos Islands in Ecuador are a UNESCO World Heritage Centre, plus one of the richest marine ecosystems in the world.

Fill me in

This idyllic place is for sure on the bucket list of many travelers, and now there are new requirements for those who want to visit The Galapagos Islands or any of the other great places in Ecuador such as the Amazonas jungle, the colonial towns, the indigenous villages or the middle of the world.

If you are currently thinking of visiting Ecuador, we invite you to keep on reading to find vital information about the PCR COVID 19 test and the Ecuador Traveler Health Declaration, which are some of the current requirements and necessary documents for citizens of the United States of America traveling to Ecuador.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Do I need a COVID vaccine or vaccination certificate to enter Ecuador?

COVID-19 vaccination passports or certificates are not mandatory to enter Ecuador.

Can American citizens travel to Ecuador during COVID-19 times?

Ecuador has resumed entry of international flights and therefore also passengers, into its territory since this past June. American citizens are allowed to visit Ecuador and those traveling to the country must take into account and follow the established measures and protocols aimed to control and prevent the spread of the virus. This is what you will need to enter Ecuador during the pandemic times: your biometric passport, and a Traveler Health Declaration.

What is the Ecuador Traveler Health Declaration?

The Traveler Health Declaration is a new requirement to enter Ecuador. This form should be truthfully filled with your traveling information such as flight and accommodation details, emergency contact info and most importantly it must indicate your real health condition. Since this is a single entry document, each time you travel to Ecuador you will need to get one.

What is a PCR COVID-19 Test?

There are currently three different types of tests for COVID-19. One of them is the Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) COVID-19 test, which is a greatly accurate test used to detect whether a person is currently infected with the virus. For this test, a nose or throat swab sample will be collected to be analyzed. If you are visiting Ecuador soon, you won't need a negative PCR COVID-19 Test. Only a Health Declaration will be required.
