Immigration requirements Immigration requirements

All participants coming from countries in which there are Ethiopian embassies or consulates are strongly advised to obtain their Ethiopian visas prior to arrival in Ethiopia. For participants who are not able to process their visas in advance, the conference secretariat will make a request for them to be given business visas upon arrival at Bole International Airport. Ethiopia requires that the passport be valid for 6 months following the date of arrival in Ethiopia.

In order to assist participants in obtaining visas upon arrival, the secretariat needs to receive the following particulars at least five working days before arrival at Bole International Airport:

  1. Full name as it appears on the passport;
  2. Nationality;
  3. Flight details (arrival and departure);
  4. Hotel booking.

Participants requesting visas upon arrival should carry with them their personal official letter of invitation for the event, so that they can show it to the immigration authorities at Bole International Airport.

Please note that an Ethiopian visa costs US$ 50 or the equivalent in euros per person. Payment must be made in either US dollars or in euros at the time of issue.

Health requirements Health requirements

Visitors to Ethiopia should be in possession of a valid health certificate for yellow fever.
