Getting a Visa can be extremely complicated and confusing. So here are 3 secrets for anyone wanting to relocate to Ecuador.

1. Make sure you choose the right Visa

Ecuador offers 12 types of Immigrant and Non-Immigrant Visas. (See sidebar) Your specific needs will dictate which of these visa types will apply to you. Gringo Visas can help determine which one is right for you.

2. Start the Visa process from your home country

Many people find themselves with incomplete, expired or missing documents, and Immigration rejects their visa application. This often results in having to fly home to fix the problem. That can be costly and time consuming.

3. Use a qualified Visa expert

Depending on your situation and the type of Visa you need, this could entail a combination of complex circumstances. Perhaps you’ve started the process yourself and found it over whelming, or have been previously turned down by Immigration in Ecuador, we can often correct these situations swiftly and effectively.

Gringo Visas is uniquely positioned to help you obtain any Visa, with offices in the United States and Ecuador. We specialize in Visas, nothing but Visas.
