Ethiopia Visa Requirements
Most nationalities including UK, Ireland, South Africa, USA, Canadian, Australian and New Zealand passport holders, require a visa to enter Ethiopia which can be obtained upon arrival at Bole International Airport in Addis Ababa, or in advance from an embassy or online. However, we advise against obtaining on arrival as a visa on arrival not only requires visitors to travel with sensitive documents but also involves waiting in long lines at the border.
UK, Australian, New Zealand, South African, USA and Canadian passport holders can take advantage of Ethiopia’s online visa service (subject to eligibility). Information about the Electronic visa for Ethiopia process can be found at: https://www.evisa.gov.et/
At present the cost of a single entry visa for up to 90 days is USD $72 for UK, Ireland, South Africa, USA, Canadian, Australian and New Zealand passport holders.
For travellers holding passports for other nationalities, please refer to Project Visa for more information.
