Ethiopia Suspends Visa-on-Arrival To Nigerians

One of the East African countries, Ethiopia has suspended Visa-On-Arrival for Nigeria and other countries due to political and insecurity situations in the country.

The Visa-On-Arrival suspension according to the Federal Government of Ethiopia is a temporary measure to tackle the increasing insecurity and political unrest in the country.

Nigerians and nationals of all countries bearing Standard Passports must obtain Ethiopian Visa at the Ethiopian Embassy or an electronic visa (e-visa) on the Immigration and Citizenship Service (ICS) portal pending when the political and security situation improves.

“The suspension applies to nationals of all countries bearing Standard Passports, who seek entry into Ethiopia and not specifically targeted at Nigerians, as reported in some quarters.

“The Ethiopian authorities have explained that the measure is aimed at better border control of the movement of persons into Ethiopia given the ongoing armed conflict in the Northern part of the country. The measure is said to be temporary, pending improvement in the security situation in the country and not a replacement of Ethiopia’s open visa policy.

“Therefore, Nigerians bearing Standard Passports intending to travel to Ethiopia are by this notification advised to obtain appropriate entry visas at the Ethiopian Embassy or an electronic visa (e-visa) through the country’s Immigration and Citizenship Service (ICS) portal at www.evisa.gov.et Also, those transiting through Bole International Airport, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia to other destinations or intend to briefly stop over would require a valid entry visa to enable them access hotel facilities in the city or else would be obligated to remain in the airport pending their connecting flight.

“The new temporary visa restriction measure came into effect on 29th September 2022. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs will liaise with the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) and relevant Airlines to ensure that intending Nigerian travellers en route to Ethiopia is well-sensitized.

“The general public is invited to take note of the new visa regime of the Federal Government of Ethiopia and be guided accordingly,” Omayuli said.
