The Djibouti eVisa is an electronic visa that grants the holder entry to the African country.
It is obtained by completing a Djibouti visa application online. This is a quick and easy process that takes a matter of minutes to complete.
This digital system was implemented in 2018, replacing the previous visa on arrival system.
Foreign nationals can get an electronic visa for Djibouti for short-term visits.
Djibouti eVisas can be obtained for tourism, business, and transit.
The traveler must enter their intended date of arrival when completing the online form. Tourist and business eVisas are valid for 31 days from this date.
Transit eVisas are valid for 3 days, which is the maximum length of time a foreign national can stay in the country between flights without a Djibouti tourist visa.
The online Djibouti visa allows the holder to enter the country a single time. If a visitor wants to leave and then return, they will need to apply again and obtain a new eVisa.
Foreigners who wish to move to Djibouti, stay in the long term, study, or perform paid work cannot do so with an eVisa. In these cases, the individual should enquire about the relevant visa at a Djiboutian embassy or consulate.
