The Galapagos

In addition to the entry requirements for Ecuador, all visitors to the Galapagos must obtain a INGALA Tourist Control Card (TCT), which allows for tourist stays up to 90 days. This card is $20 and purchased upon arrival, then turned in upon departure. All tourists must also pay a Galapagos National Park entrance fee, which is $100 for most foreign tourists, or $50 for children under 12.

We will obtain your Tourist Control Card (TCT), and the TCT fee and park entry fee are both included in your package price.

If you do not hold a U.S. passport, you are responsible for determining all entry requirements and obtaining any necessary visas. Consider using an expedited visa service.
