Insurance and accommodation update

According to the press, Ecuador will start enforcing the requirements for pre-booked accommodation and mandatory insurance in August. According to this report, the insurance has to be valid for 1 year, which doesn't make a lot of sense. Hopefully, things will become clearer shortly.


The official summary is here, but it doesn't have many details.

Thank you HLJHLJ,

the confusion never ends. I have forwarded the article to my contact at the Ecuadorian embassy in Ottawa asking her to inform her colleagues of the regulatory mess/confusion this who insurance business has created.

Warmest regards,

Heather Blenkiron
