No more COVID tests for Ecuador / Galapagos Entry

As of 11 February, the only COVID-related documentation you will need to enter Ecuador and Galapagos will be proof of full vaccination, with the last dose having been taken at least 14 days prior to embarking on your flight to the country.

As vaccines are not yet available / easy to secure for children under five years of age, it’s not clear what the protocol for that age group is.  The communiqué released by the Ministry of Tourism (see below) makes no reference to that.   

The rules have changed on several occasions over the past few months – but this new development eliminates he risk of being caught with a positive test just before a flight to Ecuador or Galapagos, ruining carefully prepared travel plans.
