Guide to Sending Parcels to Ecuador

Ecuador belongs to an elite club of nations - one of 17 identified as being megadiverse. Geography has endowed this small country with the most biodiversity per square kilometre in the world; the result of a landscape straddled by the equator, bisected by the snowclad Andes, and rivers that drain into the Amazon River basin and the Pacific Ocean.

One of Ecuador's provinces is the renowned Galápagos Islands - home to Darwin's finches and the inspiration for his theory of evolution. And in a modern way, e-commerce is also evolving in Ecuador - slowly but surely adapting to the ever changing business and internet environment, and becoming more popular every day.

Required Documents


Shipping packages internationally requires a lot of documentation. This process alone can be confusing and time-consuming. So we’ve narrowed down what documents you might need and ranked them based on likeliness of being needed.

Document Type When? Details
Shipping Label / Bill of Lading Always required This is a label provided by the carrier (UPS, FedEx, DHL, etc.). Always required because the carrier needs to know the parcel's destination.
Commercial Invoice Required for all non-document shipments
For all non-document shipments, you will require 3 copies of the commercial invoice (to be included with your shipping labels - These are for customs purposes and need to be included inside a document pouch outside of the box.

When creating a shipment through the Secureship website, the system will help you create this document automatically.

B13a Required if value exceeds $2,000 per shipment or is a controlled good
A B13a is required if your shipment exceeds $2000 CAD or is a controlled good

Learn more about the B13a form here.
Certificate of Origin (COO) Infrequently required

Allows a reduced or zero-rated import duty.
Canada has a preferential trade agreement with Ecuador. A COO proves that an item has been produced, manufactured or processed in Canada.

When an item with a COO is imported into Ecuador, it will incur a reduced or zero-rated import duty.
Certificate of Insurance (COI) Infrequently required

Shows that the shipment has been insured.
Banks may request a certificate of insurance when providing letters of credit for the goods. Otherwise, it is generally your choice whether to purchase insurance for the shipment.
ATA Carnet Infrequently required

Used to avoid duties and taxes on shipments of temporary nature.
If you ship goods of temporary nature to and from a country, you can obtain an ATA Carnet to expedite the customs clearance process and ensure that anything of temporary nature is not charged duties and taxes.

See Temporary import section
Packing list Infrequently required

No specific form is required, but generally includes information regarding:

  • The exporter, importer and transport company
  • Date of issue
  • Number of freight invoice
  • Type and number of packages
  • Contents of each package
  • Marks and numbers
  • Net weight, gross weight and measurements of each package

Prohibited & Restricted Imports

Duty & Taxes

Duty and taxes on goods shipped to Ecuador are calculated using the CIF value of the shipment, i.e. the sum of the customs value plus freight costs plus insurance charges.

CIF Value = Customs Value + Insurance Amount + Freight Costs

You can use the CIF calculation to determine duty and taxes owed by the recipient of your shipment.


Thresholds

The threshold value on shipments to Ecuador, also called the de minimis value, is $400 USD (about $500 CAD). This means that on shipments of less than this value, no duty or tax will be incurred.


Currency US Dollar (USD)
Duty Exemption (De minimis Value) $400 USD (about $500 CAD)

Ecuador Shipping Insurance


You can purchase insurance through Secureship and it is provided by the carrier that will be transporting your shipment.

Each carrier will charge a different amount per $100 of declared insurance. If you indicate that you need insurance for your shipment our system will automatically include the insurance costs for your shipment.

Insurance is great to have in case your package is accidentally lost or damaged by the carrier. But be careful, not everything you ship is insurable. Worse - even if your package contains items that are insurable, if it doesn’t meet the ISTA 3A packaging standard, the insurance purchased through the carrier would not be available to you.

Here are some items that cannot be insured by the carrier:

  • Personal belongings
  • Antiques
  • Artwork
  • Liquids (including alcohol)
  • Television
  • Jewellery in excess of $500
  • Perishable goods
  • Glass or Ceramic
  • And many more items

For more information, please see the carrier's terms and conditions.
