The Ethiopian government recommends Swedish petitioners check the visa requirements for international travelers before initiating the application process. These conditions are standard for Swedish citizens used to international travel and easy to meet. Below are some of the basic conditions for the Ethiopian eVisa they must meet:
- Have a Swedish passport valid for at least 6 months on their arrival in Ethiopia
- Upload a digital copy of the biographical page of their passport
- Supply an online id photo recently taken (6 months or less)
Register their eVisa request with a frequently accessed email address
Provide a bank card activated for online payments
Book their arrival at Bole International Airport
Swedes must abide by the requirements for their passport. It must be valid for 6 months or more on their arrival date. If it is set to expire shortly, they should submit it for renewal at their earliest convenience.
Likewise, please note, the Ethiopian eVisa is a unique online visa that, once granted, is automatically linked to the passport used during the eVisa application. This is important for Swedish citizens with dual citizenship. They should remember to apply for the Ethiopian eVisa with the same passport they will use during their visit to the country.
We recommend Swedish applicants submit their eVisa petition with an email account they frequently use since all the communications will be online. Likewise, we also recommend using a debit or credit card previously cleared for international online payments.
Lastly, it is essential for Swedish tourists to book their flights to enter Ethiopia through Bole International Airport in Addis Ababa, the country’s capital. This is the only authorized port of entry compatible with the Ethiopian eVisa.
