We get a lot of questions about the types of Ecuador visas and the process for getting a visa in Ecuador so we arranged an interview with Maité Durán at Gringo Visas. She and her team helped Amelia and me get our temporary resident visas when we decided to move to Ecuador.
Maité founded Gringo Visas over 9 years ago after she moved back to Ecuador from Connecticut. She thought the process was very confusing and difficult to navigate as an Ecuadorian native trying to get visas for her US born children, so she thought it must REALLY be difficult for non-native Spanish speakers moving from another country. That’s when the idea for Gringo Visas was born.
Now she has an office in Cuenca and one in Danbury, Connecticut with 4 employees who help people get visas, cedulas, drivers licenses, marriage licenses, health insurance and bank accounts on a daily basis. The laws and regulations are constantly changing here in Ecuador, so having an expert on the ground who stays up-to-date on the changes will make your life much easier.
There are other companies that offer visa services in Ecuador, but we only worked with Gringo Visas so we can’t attest to any of the others. If you would like to contact Gringo Visas, visit the Gringo Visas Contact Us page and be sure to tell Maité that Amelia And JP sent you.
