Ecuador offers Visa to Illegal Haitian Immigrants

You would't believe it however there are still some countries that treat Haitian immigrants decently. That is the case in Ecuador. Following a request from Haitian President Michel Martelly to President Rafael Correa, a new provision was adopted by the Ecuadorian government to regularize all Haitian nationals who have been living in Ecuador.


Any Haitians who have been living in Ecuador illegally before May 4, 2015, are now eligible to apply for a non-immigrant visa type 12-XI. This visa will be valid for six months at the time. Once the visa is obtained, the beneficiary can then apply for a migrant visa.

It is estimated that over 20,000 Haitians are currently living in Ecuador illegally and will likely benefit from this new immigration adopted by the Consultative Council on Migration Policy of the Government of Ecuador
