Ecuador

This Advice was last issued on Wednesday, 27 May 2015. On 26 May 2015, Wolf volcano in the Galapagos Islands erupted. Tourist services are operating normally and the Government of Ecuador has not announced any evacuation plans. Australians in the Galapagos Islands are advised to monitor the situation and follow the instructions of local authorities. The level of this advice has not changed. We continue to advise Australians in Carchi and Sucumbios provinces to reconsider your need to travel. We continue to advise you not to travel within 20 kilometres of the border with Colombia due to the serious risks posed by armed groups in these areas. We continue to advise Australians to exercise a high degree of caution in Ecuador overall because of the risk of violent crime.
