Galapagos Entry Requirements

Dear Passangers,

In light of COVID19 the Ecuadorian authorities have decided to update the measures of control for international travellers coming in our country.

Travelers will be required to fill out and sign a personal health statement before disembarking from the plane. This document should be handed in to the Ministry of Health representatives at the immigration lounge before clearing customs.

In addition to this, all travellers entering Galapagos must comply with the following requirements:

  • Every person entering the Galapagos Islands, older than 12 years old, must present a COVID19 vaccination certificate stating that both doses of the 2-dose vaccines have been received, with at least 14 days after the last doses. Or, a PCR test taken 72h before their flight to Ecuador.
  • For children of ages between 1 and 12 years old. It is mandatory to present a PCR test taken 72h before their flight to Ecuador.

All passengers will be subject to body temperature control for detection of temperature higher than 37.5° C upon arrival of the international flight at Ecuador airport.

All people entering the country must follow the bio-security regulations established by the Ministry of Health.
