Ethiopian E-Visa

Travelers can now apply for Ethiopian e-Visa as a single-entry travel document online. All nationals from other countries are mandatory to have a valid visa to enter Ethiopia. Note that minors must have their e-visa upon entry. Immigration officers at Addis Ababa Bole International Airport will review it upon arrival. E-Visa will expire once a traveler leaves Ethiopia regardless of the days they get to use out of the approved period.

All applicants could choose either a 30-day or 90-day period of stay. Entering other ports is strictly prohibited.

If the travelers need a multiple-entry e-Visa, they have to visit an Ethiopian Embassy. They must follow the traditional application for Visa.

If travelers need to extend their stay, they can apply online for a new e-visa during their stay in the country. They can also go to immigration a week before the expiration date of their visa. Overstaying may have corresponding consequences such as paying fines, being deported, or banned from future travel to Ethiopia.
