A certificate of migratory movements (in Spanish: certificado de movimientos migratorios) is a document that verifies the records that appear in the database of the migration authorities about your arrivals in Ecuador and departures from Ecuador. It also indicates whether there are fines and a travel ban.
You will need a certificate of migratory movements when you apply for a visa or cédula.
To obtain the certificate of migratory movements, you need the following documents:
Fee: $ 5.
At a migration office you should ask for a certificado de movimientos migratorios. After showing your passport, you will receive a payment instruction. With this payment instruction, you go to a branch of Banco del Pacífico to deposit the fee. After showing the payment receipt to the migration official, you will receive your certificate of migratory movements.
If you go to a migration office, we recommend not arriving late in the afternoon because you first need to go to a bank to deposit the fee before receiving the certificate. You have to pay the fee on the same day on which you want to receive the certificate.
A certificate of migratory movements is valid for 30 days.
