As you probably know, Ethiopia is a country on the Horn of Africa. It seems like the vast majority of countries need visas to enter Ethiopia except for Kenya and Djibouti.

Assuming that you need a visa to enter Ethiopia, it’s actually quite easy to apply for an Ethiopian visa. Rather than going through the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia’s government website and filling out an Ethiopia visa application, iVisa will submit the necessary paperwork and documentation to the Ethiopian government on your behalf and email you your Ethiopia eVisa.
All you have to do is input your passport information, anticipated travel dates, and port of arrival. Then, depending on how quickly you need it, you can choose to get your Ethiopia eVisa as soon as one business day from now.

Ethiopia Visa Requirements
It’s worth pointing out that your passport must be valid for at least six months from the date you intend to enter Ethiopia. In addition, you must submit a passport sized photo and scanned copy of your passport.
The validity of your Ethiopia tourist visa starts from the date of entry to Ethiopia that you selected on your visa application. Upon entering Ethiopia, your stay must not exceed 30 or 90 days depending on your visa duration. As soon as you leave Ethiopia, your visa expires which means you get only a single entry into the country.
