This Morning I just talked to a lady in the consulate of Atlanta, GA, USA. she says yes all the Ecuadorians and residents will be able to return to your country Ecuador, but need to wait first until Ecuador open the borders. So far, we are in Estado de excepción and alarm, so nothing yet. We must wait until first or second week of May she says when will be established the order and maybe open the borders to international flights so they can arrive to Ecuador again.
