To obtain an eVisa it is necessary to meet the basic Ethiopia visa requirements. To make the initial application it is only necessary to provide your passport details and make a payment using a credit or debit card. The following supporting documentation can be provided later on:


  • A copy of the biographical page of your passport
  • A copy of your residency card (if applicable)
  • A recent passport-style color photo


The approved eVisa can be used to gain entry into Ethiopia at Addis Ababa Bole International Airport. Applicants must meet the Ethiopia entry requirements by presenting a printed copy of the passport, along with the corresponding passport (which must have at least six (6) months remaining from the date of arrival).

Personal information requirements

Applicants are required to enter a range of personal information in order to complete the application. Some of the information required is considered highly-sensitive and includes the applicant’s name, date of birth, gender, passport details, health information, and nationality.

The information provided during the application process must be accurate. Incorrect information could lead to applications being delayed and even denied.
