  • Neil M replied to the topic Vaccinations needed? in the forum Expat Q&A 4 years ago

    no vaccinations needed for either location. The only time they would be required would be on a trip to the jungle or if you are planning on travelling to a Caribbean country from Ecuador (yellow fever) You can get all your vaccinations here for relatively nothing (pretty sure my yellow fever shot was free)

    My thoughts exactly, up until the moment I hit “publish”. Unfortunately its a reality for a large percentage of the expat community here in Cuenca

  • ver a year ago, the ground shook and rumbled, and after nearly 30 seconds of vigorous assault, the land stilled and tens of thousands of Ecuadorians were left in a state of shock, desperation and grief as their homes, possessions and loved-ones were torn away from them.

    Hey Pablo, I think we do a pretty good job of portraying the good side of Ecuador in a lot of what we publish on GringoTree. This article discusses a topic that is often ignored by major publishers around the world. The subject is important for our readers to understand… Living in Ecuador is not as cheap as some people think.

    these are NEW rules for people applying for their temporary or permanent residency and written by a lawyer in Cuenca who has spent a great deal of time researching the law so we could provide it for our readers. If you have any doubts I would advise you get in contact with Sara directly at the email on the bottom of the article.

    Yes, you’re right. Thanks for pointing that out.

  • The new 2017 Immigration Law of Ecuador, also called the “Human Mobility Act” (known in Spanish as “Ley de Movilidad Humana”), has now been officially implemented, and is currently in full force in virtual […]

    • Yes, you’re right. Thanks for pointing that out.

    • It depends on the type of Visa you are applying for. Under a Pension Visa, ie Social Security, the amount is $800.

    • 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 insurance, which we seem to have skirted, at least as a matter of not having to prove it since we already have our visas. Another question, which Marian hits around, is how long we can leave Ecuador during our first two years: “90 days for the first two years” is the usual phrasing, but would that be 90 days a year (for 180 over 2 years), or 90 each? OR, would we be subject to the new requirements? 180 days is 6 months per year! It’d be a hassle for the immigration people to differentiate between requirements for visas issued at different times, so I really wonder how this will be implemented.

    • I can help anyone needing private health insurance, no matter the age or preexisting illnesses. Write me for a quote [email protected]

    • Pardon my confusion, but does one have to have a Temporary visa (90 days per year for 2 years) BEFORE applying for a Permanent visa?

    In 1 sentance you say its not necessary to hire a guide and then in the following state that you take people (as a guide) to a “special place” far away from the registration office trips through the Caja’s. Not only is that ill advised, its also illegal. You are not a registered guide here in Ecuador and I doubt very much that you have any of the…[Read more]

  • Cajas National Park is a MUST if you are travelling Cuenca or the southern provinces of Ecuador. For me Cajas is a mystical land full of geological mystery. Every time I arrive to Cajas I feel […]

    • some misinformation here in that it is not necessary to hire a guide, at Torreadora or anywhere else in the park….I have gone many, many times alone, and now I lead small groups to a special place far away from the registration and regulation of Torreadora

      • In 1 sentance you say its not necessary to hire a guide and then in the following state that you take people (as a guide) to a “special place” far away from the registration office trips through the Caja’s. Not only is that ill advised, its also illegal. You are not a registered guide here in Ecuador and I doubt very much that you have any of the paperwork that is required to take people on these trips. Its better to go with a registered guide who is familiar with the area, the weather, and what they might expect. Going with a fly-by-night Gringo tour guide can present many problems that I’m certain you aren’t prepared to handle.
