UPDATED ENTRY PROTOCOLS - FROM JULY 1st
Starting on July 1, 2021 travelers entering Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands will be able to use one of the following documents:
- A vaccination card or certificate (with all the required doses), dated at least 14 days before entering the country.
- A certificate of a negative PCR or antigen test taken at least 72 hours prior to their flights to Ecuador for all travelers over 2 years of age.
- Health officials will also check travelers for symptoms related to COVID-19. Suspected cases will be required to have an on-the-spot antigen test. If the result is positive, travelers will need to isolate for 10 days in accommodation of their choice and at their expense. In the event that the antigen test result is negative, the traveler may continue with their travel plans.
- All travelers must complete a Health Declaration form.
- If it’s dated within 72 hours of their flight to the islands, travelers can show the same international PCR or antigen test certificate used to enter Ecuador. Or else they will need one issued by an authorized Ecuadorian laboratory.
- A Galapagos Transit Control Card (that we issue for you)
- A travel insurance certificate is required.
- The safe passage (salvoconducto) document is no longer a required (except for tour leaders).
