If a non Ecuadorian wants to marry an Ecuadorian, there are a couple of hoops to jump through. According to the US Consulate website in Guayaquil, you must have been in Ecuador for 75 consecutive days prior to the marriage and the marriage can only be performed in Quito or Guayaquil. A friend, who was in Ecuador for almost one year but is now in the US and wants to marry an Ecuadorian woman in Ecuador. His question was does the 75 day clock begin all over again becasue he is currently out of Ecuador. The answer is MAYBE. In my friend's case, he has a residency 9-I visa, so the 75 day law does NOT apply. for anyone without a visa, the clock starts when they return.
