The UK Foreign Office has announced that Ecuador is no longer on the yellow list as the country has returned to the green list
He had warned against non-essential travel to Ecuador since June due to civil unrest, although this did not affect travel to the Galapagos Islands.
Ecuador’s Tourism Minister Niels Olsen said: “We are delighted to be back on the UK Foreign Office’s Green List, and I express my particular gratitude to the British Ambassador to Ecuador Chris Campbell and our Foreign Minister Juan Carlos Holguin for their efforts to achieve this through diplomatic dialogue.
The United Kingdom is the first European source market for Ecuador.
Ecuador was present at the LATA Expo last month in London.
At this travel fair, Ecuador had a delegation of more than 18 private companies from the tourism industry, accompanied by Minister Olsen.
