Many nationalities are now offered visas on arrival at Addis Ababa Bole Airport – check your local foreign embassy for more information.
If you qualify, simply arrive at the international airport and pay $50 USD for 30 days as a tourist.
(Some nationalities require exit flight tickets, so check this too.)
Longer Ethiopian tourist visas are also possible for higher fees.
Please note if you’re coming overland to Ethiopia from another country, you’ll have to get your visa online in advance.
Certainly nationalities are also eligible to get an eVisa before arrival at Addis Ababa Bole Airport. Click here for more information.
If you’re travelling into and out of Ethiopia within a 3 month period, for example to visit Djibouti, you can get a multi-entry visa, which will be cheaper than a transit visa or 2x single entry ones.
