If someone not vaccinated, this PCR test is requiered within 72 hours before departure to Galapagos, or should be done within 72 hours, before arriving in Galapagos Islands?

Thanks in advance.

Dear Traveler,

this is no longer a requirement to enter Ecuador / Galapagos if you are fully vaccinated.

Warmest regards,

Heather Blenkiron

Hi Heather,

Do you need a negative PCR test to enter the Galapagos if you are fully vaccinated?

Thanks

No you do not need a PCR test for the Galapagos if fully vaccinated.

Please listen to Heather - she has the up to date advice, others are mistaken!
