Using this tool is very easy. You just have to select your country in the drop-down menu and also select Ethiopia as your destination. Once you finish this part, you’ll immediately know what kind of documents you need to enter, or even if you don't need a visa!
Regardless of the documents you need to enter, iVisa can also help you process the most important, which are the Ethiopian eVisa and the Health Declaration. As a plus, you can apply for both documents using a modern platform with high-quality results that won’t risk your information, and by only spending about 20 minutes completing an online form.
