If you are applying for a Professional Visa in Ecuador, you’ll need to get an Extended Tourist Visa (12-IX) from the Ecuadorian Embassy or Consulate in your home country, before you come to Ecuador. This is a simple process that can be obtained in one day, provided you have all the right documentation translated into Spanish.
Proof of Financial Support
One of the requirements when applying for an Extended Tourist Visa (12-IX), is to show proof of financial support for you and your family, for the full extent of the Visa term (180 days). Keep in mind that in order to support yourself, the Immigration authorities in Ecuador require you to have an income or cash flow of $800 per month, plus $100 for each dependent. This will give you a guideline of how much money you need to have when applying for a Professional Visa. To show proof of this financial requirement, you’ll need to provide a copy of your last month’s bank statement(s). Please be sure to check with the Ecuadorian Embassy in your home country, as each Consulate may have different requirements.
The 180-day Extension Visa (12-IX) allows you enough time to go through the process of applying for a Professional Visa, once you arrive in Ecuador.
Diploma is with an Accredited College
Before you consider applying for a Professional Visa, check that your diploma is with an accredited college accepted by the Immigration authorities in Ecuador.
