All travelers (aged 3 years and older) arriving into the Quito or Guayaquil international airports are required to present:

  • A COVID-19 vaccination card with QR code or a COVID-19 vaccination card showing the traveler received a complete series of the COVID-19 vaccine at least 14 days prior to entering Ecuador OR
  • Copy of the negative results of an RT-PCR test that was taken within 72 hours of boarding the flight to Ecuador


You must also present a declaration of traveler health (1 per family; https://declaracionsalud-viajero.msp.gob.ec/). 


Airlines are required to verify at the point of origin that the passenger has a completed vaccination card or a negative PCR test prior to boarding. 


Anyone presenting symptoms of COVID upon arrival in Ecuador is required to take a rapid antigen test at the airport. If the test result is positive, they will be required to self-isolate for 10 days in an authorized hotel even if the they have presented a negative PCR test at the airport of entry.
