“The 90 Day Rule” for new Residency Visas. Now that I have my permanent 9-1 Residency Visa I’ll initially be under certain travel limitations as follows;
For the first two years from the date my Visa was issued, December 18th, 2014, I cannot be out of the country for more than 90 days in each 12 month period.
Starting after the second year, I can leave the country for as long as 18 months at a time, and not lose my Visa. The third year I can leave for 18 months, return to Ecuador for 24 hours, and have another 18 months at a time available to leave the country.
Ecuador enforces this and people have lost their visas that didn’t abide by it.
If you’ll be doing any traveling and need travel insurance World Nomads is a travelers favorite.
