Embassy and consulate contacts for tourists and expats in Loja

Sometimes visitors/tourists and expats/immigrants need to communicate with their "home" countries. Perhaps they need to renew a passport or require assistance with contacting family back home, or some other help that only an embassy or consulate can offer.

By the way, in case you are wondering, the difference between an ambassador and a consul is that the embassy's ambassador generally deals with diplomatic relations between countries while the consuls are more about assisting the "man on the street" with conducting businesses overseas, or visa and passport issues.

I thought it useful to create an easy to access list of some of the more common embassies and consulates in Ecuador based on the nationalities of people I have worked with over the last few years.

Not every country is listed here, of course, and it should also be noted that not every country has an official physical presence in Ecuador. For example, contacts for Australia are located in Chile, and for Poland are in Peru.

I hope this list will be useful for you. If your country is NOT listed then feel free to contact us (the Life in Loja team) and we'll work to get the you the information you need.
