Formalities of entry and settlement

To visit Ethiopia, the rule is to ask before departure a tourist visa for a period of three months at the Embassy of Ethiopia in Paris.

Nationals from a number of countries including France may nevertheless obtain a tourist visa upon arrival. This facility is however only possible at the two international airports of the country: Addis Ababa and Dire Dawa, to the exclusion of any other entry point including road: (From Kenya: Madle, Omorate.) From Djibouti: Dewote, Galafi From Somalia: Kebri Beya, Teferi, Ber, Dolo Odda and Togo Wouchale From Sudan: Metama and Umera

The passport, whose validity must be longer than the visa requested, must be in good condition.

A vaccination certificate against yellow fever is mandatory.

Like tourists or visiting foreigners, Ethiopians and foreign residents with a visa or resident card are now exempt from the exit visa.
