Gringo Visas video set up

Gringo Visas launches a 14-minute informative video packed with facts about Ecuadorian Visas.  A must-see if you’re thinking of moving to Ecuador.

Founder, Maite Duran talks about the different types of visas available, starting with the most popular for expats, the Foreign Pension Visa (9-I).

The video also covers the Investor Visa (9-II), which can be obtained either through a certificate of deposit (CD) for $25,000 plus an additional $500 for each dependent, or a real estate investment with property value assessed at a minimum of $25,000, to secure a permanent resident visa in Ecuador.

For those seeking a Professional Visa (9-V), Maite recommends obtaining the 180-day Extended Tourist Visa (12-IX) from any Ecuadorian Consulate before entering Ecuador and applying for the Professional Visa. This visa is based on a college or university degree or diploma that is recognized and accredited by the Ecuadorian education agency SENESCYT.
