 IMMIGRATION TO ECUADOR
Resident Visas [IMMIGRANT]

Investors in industry who wish to export agricultural products, livestock, or minerals, provided they bring capital the equivalent of at least 600 minimum monthly general salaries to Ecuador, or amount specified by Consular Officer [in the U.S. at least US$ 25,000].
