Ethiopia is a top choice for many international travelers to Africa. And who can blame them? After all, this country boasts a natural landscape with a rich history and ritual ceremonies. But before immersing yourself in Ethiopian culture, you must acquire an Ethiopian visa.
Ethiopia E-Visa Service
While U.S. travelers to Ethiopia can obtain a visa on arrival, those of Somali or Eritrean descent cannot access such services. Moreover, processing a visa at the airport often results in delays as it involves several checks. Thus, getting an Ethiopia E-Visa is the safer bet. It allows you to travel with the peace of mind that you will enter the country.
An Ethiopia E-Visa can have a validity of 30 to 90 days, depending on the selection made during the application process. However, you will only know the validity of your Ethiopia E-Visa when it is approved, and you receive the travel document.
Please note that you must adhere to the stipulations on the visa. Overstaying your visa amounts to $10 for each extra day. You cannot leave the country without paying off these charges, which can hamper your departure or transit plans.
To qualify for the Ethiopia E-Visa, U.S. applicants must have:
a) A passport that meets the following criteria:
- The passport must be valid for six months after the date of arrival in the country, and
- The passport must have at least one blank page.
If your passport is due to expire in the next six months or does not have a blank page, you should renew it before applying for an Ethiopia E-Visa. Travel Visa Pro can expedite the application such that you receive a new passport in a business day or even less time.
b) Proof of vaccination
Please note that if you will be traveling from a country with a risk of yellow fever transmission, you will also need to provide a yellow fever certificate.
c) Supporting documents
- A scanned copy of your passport,
- A scanned picture of yourself, and
- Electronic documents that show the purpose of your visit.
Ethiopia E-Visas are only applicable for short-term stays and are single-entry documents. If you wish to stay longer than 90 days or require a multiple entry visa, you cannot access this via the online system. You would instead need to apply for a regular visa which you can do through our website.
Ethiopia E-Visa Processing Time
Immigration policies are not standard and are thus subject to changes. As such, you should always look up the current travel restrictions and regulatory changes to know whether you can get an Ethiopia E-Visa and how long the process takes. Generally, the Ethiopia E-Visa should be ready in about a week. However, delays at immigration could result in longer Ethiopia E-Visa processing times.
If you would like to expedite your process and get your Ethiopia E-Visa in about one day or less, please talk to our team at +1-833-TVP-VISA (887-8472).
Ethiopia E-Visa Fees
The Ethiopia E-Visa fees are not standard for all applications, and they instead depend on several factors. These include the validity of the visa and whether you have expedited the application. Please note that the fees are not refundable.
As such, you must be careful when filling in the form to ensure you submit the correct details to avoid having your Ethiopia E-Visa application rejected. Our team is on standby to help you work out the kinks of the application so you can set off on your journey as soon as possible.
Ethiopia E-Visa Application Form
Registering for an Ethiopia E-Visa is relatively straightforward. You must include the following details in Ethiopia E-Visa application form:
- Your full name as it appears on your passport,
- Your date of birth,
- Your contact details,
- Accurate passport information, and
- Health and security information.
If the details check out, you will receive your Ethiopia E-Visa via the email address you provided when filling out the form. You will need to print this email which you will present to the immigration officers on arrival in Ethiopia.
