I am scheduled to fly to Ecuador (Guayaquil) in a few months from the US. Ecuador currently requires a negative COVID-19 PCR test from no more than 10 days before entry in order go avoid quarantine. I found this and other useful information on the US Embassy site. I also found similar information in Spanish from what appears to be the official Ecuadorian embassy site (plus Galápagos-specific information in English).
However, I cannot find any information about what specifically counts as a negative COVID-19 PCR test. I get regular COVID-19 tests via test-at-home kits, and each test result shows (in English):
- My name
- The approving physician's name
- The type of the test (SARS-CoV-2 RT-PCR)
- A test ID/locator number
- The "result date" (just the date, no time). This is not actually the date the test sample was collected from me, just the date the lab finished analyzing it (typically a couple days later).
- The result: "Not Detected" for a negative test
- The name/logo of the lab that performed the test
Is a print out of such a test result enough to qualify for entry to Ecuador, or do I need a test result showing more information? Would it be better to directly show the website containing the test result on my phone? Where could I find authoritative information on this topic?
