Once Eritrean citizens confirm they have the documents needed, they are ready to fill in the Ethiopia eVisa online form and submit their application.
In addition to these documents, Eritrean travelers will also have to provide specific information regarding their travel details to Ethiopia, including travel dates, airlines with whom they are traveling, and proof of accommodation. There will also be questions to be answered regarding their personal and passport details.
Eritreans planning a family holiday in Ethiopia should apply individually for each traveler regardless of their age. All arrivals, including minors, are obliged to have an approved eVisa at passport controls.
Eritrean candidates filling out the application form must take special care and double-check their answers before finally submitting them. If there is any mismatch between their answers and the information published on their passport or any typos, their approval could be delayed or denied.
Once submitted, the Ethiopia eVisa is processed quickly, usually within 24 hours. On busy periods it could take up to 36 hours. If candidates have not received a reply after 3 working days, we suggest checking their spam folder.
The Ethiopia eVisa is automatically and electronically linked to the Eritrean visitor’s passport. We also recommend that the Eritrean citizens print out a copy of the eVisa or store it on their smartphone if officials in Ethiopia require it.
