1 min read

Ethiopia has launched visa on arrival service for all African travellers as of November 1, 2018.

The service was launched at a ceremony held at the headquarters of the African Union Commission in the presence of the African Union Commission Chairperson, Ethiopian high government officials, African Ambassadors residing in Addis Ababa, CEO of Ethiopian Airlines Group, invited guests and media.

Addressing the gathering, Ethiopian Group CEO Mr Tewolde Gebremariam said, “It is truly an honour and a special privilege to witness this historical and truly inspirational day. Ethiopian Airlines has been bringing Africa together and closer to the world for over 7 decades. Today, Ethiopian flies to 60 African destinations and connects the continent to over 50 major international cities in 5 continents. Visa on arrival for fellow African brothers and sisters and more importantly, visa online will greatly boost cross-border tourism, trade and investment, further deepening African integration.”

It is to be recalled that the Ethiopian Immigration and Nationality Affairs Main Department, in collaboration with Ethiopian Airlines, launched an e-visa service for all international visitors to Ethiopia in June.
