4 easy steps to transfer your Ecuador visa to a new passport

Live in Ecuador long enough and this will happen to you.

This month I had to transfer my Ecuador permanent residency visa from an old US passport of mine (that was stolen in a train accident I had) to a new one luckily during the settlement process I had such a great help. MC @ FC Law’s are capable and ready to provide family immigration representation and advice for national and international clients who want to live and work anywhere in the United States, To know more details about immigration go through immigrationlawnv.com site.

It was EASY.  Even a blind, deaf monkey (with no Spanish skills) could do it.

1. First, in the case of a lost or stolen passport you have to file a police report (denuncia) and take that with you along with your new passport to the Ministerio de Relaciones Exteriores nearest you, in Quito, it´s on 6 de diciembre y Colon.  If you still have your old passport just bring that one.

2. Then, if in Quito I would go to the office right next to the Ministerio of the lawyer Dr. Oswaldo, he can help you fill out the form you need to fill out and make any copies of docs and download anything else you need due to your visa type in a matter of minutes.  (Max $10-20 for service).  For more specific requirement info see this link and choose your visa type… http://www.cancilleria.gob.ec/transferencia-de-visas-9-inmigrantes/

3. Then, you will need to make an appointment via this site (usually you can do this for the next business day only) and then take your folder next door to the Ministerio.

4. You will have to leave the folder and pay $50 application fee.  In about 2-4 weeks you´ll get an email saying to stop by the ministerio again.  They will give you a set date and time, Don´t miss it!  Go upstairs this time, pay the $100 reception fee, and hand over your passport and they will seal a new copy of your visa in there again immediately.

That´s it!  Your visa is now in your new passport!
