Our experience

Our experience

As a testimony of our 10 years of experience our clients speak for us.

For 2 years now I have been trying to complete my Ecuadorian Will and last rites. I made 3 attempts. Either I had to get 5 witnesses or arrange a notary or bury myself. Finally, on my fourth try, I read a recommendation on this web site praising Expat Community Ec. I was not disappointed. Within 2 weeks, I had the above documents officially completed. They arranged for everything: 5 witnesses, notary, government certification, etc. They are bilingual, highly professional and extremely cautious; sanitizing and being safe during this pandemic. It is such a relief, finally, completing this arduous task.

I can start my permanent visa in July. Without question I will be getting Karina y Indira at Expatcommunityec to do the work.

Please give them a call. They will even do everything at your residence, including getting a notary to visit.

Recommendation for Expat Community EC, Wills, last rites, visas

Karina helped me transfer my existing visa to my new passport in at a very reasonable cost in comparison to a lawyer’s fee. It took about three weeks to complete after I had received my new passport from the Consulate here in Ecuador.

It took two trips to Azogues and one to the Migratory office here in Cuenca at the airport, plus Karina was a major help with figuring out the correct information online and getting together the necessary paperwork for proof of medical insurance.

She also has a car and can provide transportation. I would highly recommend Karina for this process.

Recommendation for Karina/Kary Urgiles, Expat Community Ec for visa transfer

I want to express my appreciation of your attention to assisting me in obtaining my Cedula. You went over and above what was expected. I have worked with two other
professionals here in Ecuador. Both of them did what they said they were going to do but no more.

You though took it upon yourself to drive me to Azogues for an additional trip. The cause of the trip was not your fault nor mine. You refused to allow me to compensate you for the trip.

I am very appreciative of your professionalism and diligence as regards to helping me obtain my Cedula. Thank you again very much.

We used Kary to help up get our driver’s licenses and to help with the replacement of a lost Cedula.

She is familiar with both these processes and made it easy to prepare for our visits to the offices. She also translated our documents and had them notarized. Best of all, she has a knack for convincing officials to accept the documents we had, even if there was, technically, something missing.

Somehow she gets them to sympathize with us. This ability is not something we’ve seen from the other facilitators we’ve used. Her rates are very reasonable and her work is accurate and precise.

Recommendation for Kary Urgilés, Expat Communty Ec: cedulas, driver's licenses

Good Morning Everyone: I wanted to take a few moments of your time to introduce you to a wonderful assistant. Her name is Karin and does a lovely job to assist those of us new to Ecuador and will absolutely go with you for the long haul.

I found myself in a Cedula situation where I had to get a document notarized and translated by someone in Cuenca.

I saw her ad and decided to give her a try. She not only did a superb job, she did not over charge and she had everything completed and was standing outside at 7 pm ready to hand over the documents.

I do not say this very often: Absolutely Excellent! She is calm,
thorough and patient.
