Ethiopia is one of the countries that opted issuing electronic visas, which means that visiting Belgian are no longer required to go to Ethiopian embassy to get a visa. Instead, you can apply online using iVisa’s services. To make sure that you can obtain the document, you need to check your eligibility first. You can do that using the Visa Checker located upper-right corner of the website. Select your country of origin and add Ethiopia as your destination. The information will be displayed in just a second. Not only that but if you are eligible for an Ethiopia evisa, you can apply on the spot.
The process for Belgian created by iVisa is quite simple, and you do not need much to get started. They will do most of the work but you still need to provide a few things to help with your application. Here is a list of what you need to provide:
Belgian valid passport – getting one is easy, and if you already have one, keep in mind that it needs to keep its validity for at least another six months after you arrive in Ethiopia. Otherwise, your application will be denied.
A digital copy of your passport – the information page is the most important, but you should scan the entire booklet.
A digital passport-sized photo of yourself – preferably as recent as possible.
A residence permit – this requirement applies only to foreigners who apply from another country other than their country of origin. A letter or a visa sticker in your passport will suffice.
Forms can get complicated sometimes but iVisa’s form is the opposite. In case that you will further assistance, iVisa has an amazing 24/7 support service for Belgian. You can give them a call so that can help you every step of the way.
The process is divided into three simple steps. The first one will ask you to fill in your general information like name, address, passport info, and so on. You must also select a processing time and the visa type (30-day or 90-day stay.) Both factors will affect the cost of your visa, so make sure that you have all the information.
The second step consists of payment and revision. It is essential that you provide correct information since mistakes can lead to application denial. After your application is processed, corrections are no longer possible, and the price is non-refundable.
The third step consists of additional documents upload. Depending on the case, some Belgian will be required to upload several things. After you are done, you hit the submit button and wait for your visa to arrive via e-mail.
Processing time and fees
iVisa almost always provides three processing times that fit every need and every pocket. Here are our options and the cost for each of them:
Standard processing – the most affordable option available on iVisa, and your application will be processed within three business days. For that, you need to pay $87.
Rush processing – this time, your visa will be ready within 2 business days, and the price goes a little bit higher. You will be charged $117.
The fees mentioned above are for the 30-day Ethiopia evisa. If you are interested in a 90-day visa, just add $20 to each price above, and you will find out the cost.
The Ethiopia evisa for Belgian is only for tourism and family visits. It provides a single entry (no matter the visa type,) and the entry point is through Addis Ababa Bole International Airport only. All the other points of entry require a consular visa currently.
