From December 22, all travelers arriving from the UK, Australia, South Africa and the EU are required to take an antigen test (rapid test) on arrival at the airport.
Travelers must present a completed Health Declaration Form and a completed Immigration form as well as a negative RT-PCR test for COVID-19 issued within 10 days before arrival. Travelers who are unable to provide a PCR test will be tested at the airport at their own expense.
Special 'travel corridors' exist for tourists visiting the Galapagos. Foreigners wishing to enter the islands must present a negative RT-PCR test for COVID-19, taken 96 hours prior to the date of departure to Ecuador. On arrival in Ecuador, tourists may be requested to take another PCR test, at their own expense. Tourists must also present a return flight and a safe passage document (‘salvoconducto’) issued by the Ministry of Tourism to be exempt from doing 14 days of self-isolation on the islands. The tour operators or hotels are responsible for arranging this safe passage document on behalf of tourists, given that visitors are required to have previous contracted travel and accommodation arrangements. The Galapagos Transit Control Card, will need to be filled out online at least 24 hours before the flight. On arrival in Ecuador you will be required to fill in a Health Status Declaration, including a local address.
Arriving travelers may be subject to random rapid antigen testing conducted at the airport by the Ministry of Health, regardless of whether a negative COVID RT-PCR test is provided. If the rapid antigen test is positive, they must isolate for 10 days at one of the Ministry of Health's Centers for Temporary Attention in Quito or Guayaquil. As of January 11, it is no longer permissible to perform the isolation at a private residency or hotel.
Travelers from the UK, Australia, South Africa and the EU will have to carry out obligatory self-isolation for 5 days. Non-residents of Ecuador will have to self-isolate in hotels determined by the local authorities, at their own expense. Residents can isolate in their home.

Pros: "Nothing. Airlines changed the flight time for connecting flight with out informing us. Whole reason, I booked a earlier flight so I can get to spend time in Lima but Avianca airlines changed the connecting flight from Bogata from 125pm flight to 330pm flight. I paid additional $250/ticket to get these tickets so I can get to Lima earlier than 7pmso that my wife and I can enjoy our honeymoon. I am very disappointed that airlines decided to switch flights without our approval. We did reach to Bogota at 1155am and we even tried to catch the 125pm flight from Bogota to Lima. but the staff was not helpful at all. All they kept on saying, “sorry nothing can be done, go file a complain”. Are you kidding me by saying that to your client, “go file a complaint”, instead of assisting. I guess Avianca airlines crew needs to learn about hospitality and customer service. NO AIRLINE MAKES Involuntary CHANGES with out notifying customers. Even on United Airlines, they don’t change flights with out informing customers."
