Just so you know about the legality of what you're asking for...

1.  The person who issues a Letter of Invitation for the purposes of tourism or immigration, must first of all be a citizen or permanent resident.

2. The Letter of Invitation carries with it two very weighty legal obligations, firstly to guarantee the financial sufficiency of the invitee (i.e. if he/she can't pay their expenses, the person who issues the letter is legally responsible to pay them). Second, they must guarantee that the invitee will leave the country when their visa expires.

3.  It is a crime to make false statements or omit major facts in a Letter of Invitation, this will not only result in denial of a visa, but also criminal charges.

4.  It is a crime to charge or offer to pay any fee for a Letter of Invitation.

5.  Immigrations authorities will be looking for proof of some family relationship, long-term personal friendship, or an employer/employee relationship in any Letter of Invitation. If they can't establish one, they deny the visa.

Now do you really think that you're going to find someone here who is willing to provide a Letter of Invitation to a complete stranger??? I can assure you that you will not.

It is unclear why a letter of invitation is being required, since India is not among the 11 countries that require a visa to enter Ecuador.  (source: Wikipedia page for Ecuador visa policy).  Except for those countries, visitors are typically allowed into Ecuador on a 90-day tourist stamp, available at no charge at the Quito or Guayaquil airport.

You need to enlighten KLM employees that neither a Letter of Invitation nor a visa are necessary for a citizen of India to visit Ecuador, and that they have no right to prevent you from boarding the plane and demand these documents.

Here is a list of the world's countries and their entry requirements for citizens of India. Ecuador is visa-free. No LOI, no visa. Make a copy of this wiki page and show it to the KLM employees.

If anyone needs a third-party to sort out visa complications, best to deal with a visa facilitator or immigration attorney.

Here are two good contacts....

Facilitator (Guayaquil)... Profesora Dana Cameron... Dana.Visas(at)gmail.com

Attorney (Quito and the Coast)... Sebastian Cordero ... scordero(at)gcabogados.com
