The National Government has established a ban on entry to Ecuador for all foreign citizens who are not residents of Ecuador as of this Sunday, March 15, at 11:59 p.m.

The government provision also indicates that, starting at 11:59 p.m. on Monday, March 16, Ecuadorian citizens or foreigners residing in Ecuador will not be able to enter the country either. According to official information, this measure will be valid for 21 days.

There are no restrictions of any nature to leave Ecuador.

So far, the Mariscal Sucre airport is operating as usual. The measures do not affect internal flights in the country or cargo flights and is adopted to contain the spread of Covid-19.

Corporación Quiport recommends that all passengers contact their airline for more details on the flight options they offer.

Likewise, we remind the public that air tickets for international flights are not sold at the Mariscal Sucre International Airport, therefore, there is no reason to go to the airport without having an air ticket for a confirmed flight.

Sanitary measures at the Quito Airport

Corporación Quiport has been consistently disinfecting the entire international arrival area as of January 29 of this year. In order to contribute to efficient prevention, the company, as the concessionaire of the Quito airport, will extend the disinfection to the entire passenger terminal, that is, national and international arrivals and departures areas, as well as public halls. For this effect we are using a broad spectrum virucidal agent that allows immediate disinfection.

In addition, we are placing more than 200 disinfectant gel dispensers throughout the passenger terminal of Quito airport.

We are focused on providing all collaboration and working in coordination with the National Government (Government, Transport and Public Works and Health Ministries, as well as the General Directorate of Civil Aviation) and the Municipality of Quito (Metropolitan Public Company of Airport Services) to protect passengers and staff at Quito International Airport.

We ask citizens to follow health recommendations, avoid listening to and replicating rumors and false information, and to report through official channels.
