What kind of timeline can you expect if someone from the states send you a parcel or package?
Also, if receiving important documents that are very time sensitive, what is the quickest way to have them sent to Ecuador (apostilled documents for temp. resident visas}
Does anyone have info and or suggestions to this topic

unless you send it with a "mule" only way you can get a package here at this point is using DHL, UPS, or FedEx.........the regular Postal System here has been shut down for the last year. Be aware that the person receiving the package will owe $42 automatic fee, plus duty on the package.
