On 29 March 2024, Ecuador extended the ongoing state of emergency in the country until 8 April 2024 to manage domestic security concerns. As part of the state of emergency, which began on 8 January 2024, the following policy and process changes were introduced and extended until 8 April 2024: (i) Peruvian and Colombian nationals entering Ecuador by land must submit an apostilled criminal records certificate issued recently by competent authorities in their country of citizenship or the countries where they resided in the five years prior to entry, confirming that they do not have any criminal convictions during this time period; and (ii) freedom of movement is restricted. Curfews have been introduced in cities nationwide. In Quito and Guayaquil, the curfew is from midnight until 5 am local time. Travel to and from airports during the curfew period is permitted for individuals traveling on scheduled flights. These individuals may be required to present their plane ticket to the authorities if requested.
