              Regularization - Other nationalities

              In Ecuador there are different alternatives to regularize the immigration status of foreigners.

              It is important to know that South Americans may not be inadmissible or deported when they have re-entered the country after having started the process of regularizing their immigration status until it is resolved.

              Still, when a foreign person has not regularized their migratory situation in Ecuador within the term established according to the specificity of each case, the migratory control authority will notify them of the obligation to leave the country within a period of thirty days, unless Once this period is met, a deportation procedure will be initiated.

              In this way, if you are irregular in Ecuador, you must apply for one of the temporary or permanent residence visas. For this, you will need a series of requirements that include a valid passport, a criminal record certificate, the payment of fees for the application and issuance of visas, and some specific requirements for each category.
