Ecuador Overhauled Its Residency Visa Laws (February 2022)

We have a new March 2022 video about the updated visa laws.

We’re happy to send an email introduction to you and Maite at GringoVisas.

Ecuador changed its temporary residency visa requirements on February 18, 2022. The income requirements have changed for the pensioner visa, the investment amount has changed for the investor visa, and the new Ecuador digital nomad visa is finally available.

Most of the changes are being phased in over the next month, and there are still a lot of unanswered questions, but we did our best to cover the highlights. Once we have more details about how the laws are being implemented in reality, we’ll share an updated video, probably in the next 4 to 6 weeks.
