Important information about obtaining the 9-I Permanent Residence Visa

Today I received my 9-1 Permanent Residence Visa. Some points on information that may be of interest to this seeking this visa:

1. I did not use an attorney but represented myself. This worked just fine even though I don't speak Spanish. Saved me hundreds of dollars in attorney fees.

2. I ordered and had apostilled virtually all the required documents from the US after I arrived in Ecuador. The only challenge with this was how slow return delivery by the Ecuadorian postal service can be. My requests for the documents arrived to their destinations in the US quickly by using the postal service. However, there was a significant delay in the Ecuadorian postal service delivering the return documents. Subsequently, I would recommend sending your requests out of Ecuador by regular mail (a lot cheaper) but to have documents sent to you in Ecuador by DHL. It's a lot more expensive, but it ensures a prompt return delivery. (A document from Thailand arrived in 5 days using DHL)

Shelves needed fast

At the last minute, we decided we needed some shelves to keep supplies in our bodega. They are only needed for storing items our property manager will need for our rental. The longest wall is 160 cm or 65 inches, so nothing longer than that. The height is not much of a problem since it is well over 6 feet. Depth is usually standard so it does not matter.

We will be returning to Europe on May 31, so we would love to get these before we leave if at all possible. We do not drive, so we would need help finding transportation or if they can be un-assembled, a taxi to you and back might be the solution.

My Ecuadorian phone is not a smartphone and I am not too smart at using it. If I see missed calls, I will call you back, but email is best.

Wanted: computer monitor or other "screen"

I work for a local nonprofit and we are looking to do a feasibility study with a new product called a "GreyBox." In order to do so, we need a "screen," which could be an old computer monitor, tablet, or any type of electronic screen. Does anyone in the gringo community have one for sale or be willing to donate to this project?

Here is some more information about the project:

GreyBox is a nonprofit based in Montreal, Canada, that specializes in wifi network technology and data management for community development. They work directly with nonprofits and community organizations in marginalized areas to develop adapted educational and IT tools to help them better manage their operational resources and work towards community-led self-sufficiency. They are currently working on their beta version of their prototype: a portable device that provides a mobile wifi hotspot, offline data storage and offline access to project management and professional development tools. The device is solar-powered and will automatically sync data and work done on applications so no work is lost when internet and electricity are down. For more information, please visit
