Important Notes

  • Replacing a Lost/Stolen Passport
    Applicants seeking to replace a lost/stolen passport should complete the “Statement Regarding Lost/Stolen Passport” (Form DS-64 PDF - 44kb).   At the time of application for a new passport, they must have reported the loss to local police and provide a copy of the police report.  They must also obtain a report from Ecuadorian Immigration (known locally as a “movimiento migratorio”) showing when they entered Ecuador using the lost/stolen passport.

    Emergency Travel
    In specific cases, such as a medical emergency, limited validity passports may be produced locally at the discretion of the consular officer.  Please note that lack of planning on the part of travelers who have already purchased airline tickets or tour packages does not constitute an emergency.  Contact the Consulate for more information.
