Reliable Information about living and working in Ecuador

Relocating to and living in Ecuador necessitates lots of reliable information on different facets of Ecuadorean expat life. Many questions come up when living overseas in Ecuador: ʺAre we, as expats, liable to Ecuadorean income tax law?ʺ, ʺAre there many bilingual elementary schools in the big cities?ʺ, ʺHow to find a trustworthy maid in Quito?ʺ, or ʺWhat are the requirements to get a Ecuadorean residence permit for my wife?ʺ

Looking for so much information on working and living in Ecuador is rather bothersome and requires a lot of time. The InterNations Expat Guide for Ecuador is designed to help you and offers trusted information on all issues of interest to expats living in Ecuador. Various topics are covered in our Ecuador Expat Guide from housing and household, to administration & finance or culture and sights, up to housing & household. Such characteristic questions that concern expat life abroad as ʺCan the average expat afford their own beach property?ʺ will no more remain open.

Of course, InterNations is active far beyond Ecuador. Please feel free to explore our expatriate guide on living in Spain or living in Thailand.
