Mandatory Travel Health Insurance for Tourists entering Ecuador

According to the most recent notice from the Ecuadorian Ministry of Tourism
all foreign visitors entering Ecuadorian territory
for tourism purposes should have
Travel Health Insurance,
good for as long as he or she remains within Ecuador.

Starting May 1, 2018, it will be mandatory for every
international tourist to show to immigration authorities upon
their arrival at the airport that he or she carries an
Integral Health Insurance Policy (medical, accident and death)
for the same duration as the tourist’s stay.

In the event that the passenger does not carry an insurance policy
and/or card that proves this requirement,
the passenger’s entrance to Ecuador could possibly be denied.
