    This is the clearest rundown of the new laws I’ve come across, and I’ll trust Ms Chaca to have gotten it right since this presentation is pretty direct and unambiguous. What is not covered and perhaps another subject, is how those of us with recent, pre-2017 permanent residency visas, are effected. First, there is the requirement for health…[Read more]

    Seems to me there’s a natural process of muddling and fine-tuning of new laws like these. The really awkward part, that Khan addresses, is what is up with those who have (for example), the current “indefinido” visas. The law seems to want to cover them with just the footnote he reproduces.

    I’m going to guess that those people will be covered…[Read more]

    My understanding was that you were allowed 90 days out of country during each of the first two years. Her writing seems clear that it is 90 days total for the two year span.

    The question that begs here is about the quality of Coffee Pasado. Me parece, the quality varies. But if its a well-maintained sock that’s been properly seasoned for years, like a cast iron frying pan, and if the quantity and quality of the beans is sufficient, the stuff is really first-rate.

    I wanted to confirm you meant that after procuring the visa, for the empadronamiento step for the cedula one needs to go to Cuenca’s Ministry office over by the Millennium Mall, as opposed to the Azoques ministry office one went to previously.

    Not that I’m any great authority on the Ecuadorian bureaucracy, but generally when one gets to unique, squirrelly cases, it becomes open to interpretation, meaning the mood of the person you’re dealing with. There are certainly “hard” points beyond discussion, but I’d bet this one could go either way. That said, I’ve read many comments on…[Read more]

    Has anyone else run into the need for a birth certificate, essentially required for the cedula if not the visa itself (only possibly, of course, since it was not required in this case)? If one is not able to get the cedula due to lack of a birth certificate (or whatever), will they still be able to leave the country?

    I thought I was all…[Read more]

    Seems to me the only difference between the prof and pensioners visa is the need for degree. Otherwise, for a pensioners you have to instead present proof of income. Now that I think of it, there’s also the deal with prior marriages…..basically, however, is this true?

    OK, I’m stupid. So, how on this website would one respond to this solicitation? Shouldn’t there be an email or phone # noted? On similar websites for other countries there are member directors where one can make contact and exchange notes within the system. If there is such a link please tell me precisely where on the page I should be seeing…[Read more]
