Canadian nationals planning on visiting Ethiopia must have the Ethiopia eVisa to enter the country, regardless of the period of expected stay or the intended purpose of travel.
Visas are available for different types of travel. In 2017, Ethiopia introduced the eVisa, an electronic tourist visa available for travelers from 230 countries, including Canada.
This means that any Canadian passport holder traveling to Ethiopia for tourism can follow the Ethiopian eVisa requirements for Canadians and submit an application online.
Thanks to this new electronic visa system, it has never been easier or quicker to apply for an Ethiopian visa from Canada.
The Ethiopia eVisa grants entry to Ethiopia for Canadian nationals for purposes of tourism only. Canadian citizens who plan to travel to Ethiopia for reasons other than tourism, such as business, study or work, or medical care, can read further the Ethiopia eVisa policies and find if an alternative visa suits them more.
