The application for the Ethiopian eVisa is a simple questionnaire available through an online form. South African petitioners can complete their request in less than 30 minutes. They will be required to provide personal and passport information, arrival date, and choose their required duration of stay.
South African travelers need to ensure that they enter valid details into the form that match those shown on their passports. Any mistakes in their petition can lead to a delay in their evaluation process or even a denial.
South African groups planning a family holiday with children in Ethiopia should note that each arrival must reach the country with their individual eVisa approved and issued. They can fill in their dependents’ petitions on their behalf and use the same payment methods and email address for communications without any problems.
Petitioners from South Africa conclude their eVisa request by paying the processing fee. As mentioned above, we recommend they confirm their bank cards have been previously activated for international transactions and carry sufficient funds before actioning payment.
