To date the U.S. Mission in Ecuador has helped facilitate the return of more than 2,400 U.S. citizens to the United States – fully one-quarter of those yesterday, March 27.  However, we know there may be more U.S. citizens who still need urgent assistance returning home.  If you still seek our assistance in returning to the United States, even if you have contacted us before, we ask that you please fill out this online questionnaire immediately for EACH member of your party so that we can continue to assist you.  We ask that you fill in this quick questionnaire as soon as possible, preferably before noon tomorrow, Sunday, March 29.

The Embassy is aware of several flights with seats available from Quito and Guayaquil for U.S. citizens to return to the United States.  These flights could fill at any time and there is no guarantee that future flights will be scheduled, so we urge those U.S. citizens wishing to depart to immediately book an available commercial flight or be prepared to remain in Ecuador for an indefinite period.  For information regarding these options, please visit:
