Ecuador passport requirements
If you are a foreign national inside the United States, you are generally required to have a valid passport from your country of citizenship. Some U.S. citizens enjoy the privilege of dual citizenship. Citizens of Ecuador, whether foreign nationals or dual citizens, may apply for a passport at an embassy or consulate inside the United States with a valid cedula; an original Ecuadoran identification card.
Items you will need
- Passport application form
- Cedula, original Ecuadoran identification card
- Cash or money order
- Self-addressed stamped envelope (optional)
Print the passport application form found on the Embajada del Ecuador website (listed in the Resources section of this article). Fill it out completely and legibly with blue or black ink.
Find your nearest Ecuadoran embassy or consulate. These offices are located in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, Minneapolis, New York, New Jersey, San Francisco, Tampa and Washington. See the link in this article's Resources section for corresponding contact information.
Call the nearest embassy or consulate during business hours to make an appointment.
Take your original Ecuadoran identification card, otherwise known as a Cedula, to your appointment at the embassy or consulate. Present your I.D. and application form, sit for your pictures and pay the fee with cash or money order; no checks, debit or credit cards. At the time of publication, the fee was $110.
Pick up your new passport at the office in three to 10 business days. You may also supply the representative with a self-addressed stamped envelope if you would like to have your new passport mailed to you instead.
