The application requirements
iVisa made a really straight forward process for Italian. iVisa will do most of the work while you only need to provide a few things to help with your application. Below are the requirements:
Italian valid passport – getting one is easy nowadays. If you already have one, don’t forget that it needs to stay valid for at least another six months from date of entry in Ethiopia. Otherwise, there is a possibility that your application might be denied.
A digital copy of your passport – simply scan the entire document.
A digital passport-sized photo of yourself – preferably as recent as possible.
A residence permit – this only applies to foreigners who are applying from another country other than their country of origin. A letter or a visa stamp in your passport will suffice.
Valid e-mail address – your visa is linked to your passport electronically but iVisa will still send you a copy in PDF format. This is because you will be required to show it at the immigration office. Make sure that you provide a valid and accurate e-mail address.
Ethiopia evisa for Italian – the application form
While completing the form and you ran into complications, you can simply call iVisa’s amazing customer service for Italian. However, you do not have to worry about that because the form is really simple as compared to others.
You will be asked you to fill in your general information like name, address, passport info, and so on in the first step. You also need to choose a processing time and the visa type (30-day or 90-day stay.). Make sure that you have all the information as both will affect the cost of your visa.
The second step will be about payment and revision. For this part, it is essential that you provide correct information since mistakes can deny your application. Once your application is processed, corrections are no longer possible, and the fee is non-refundable.
The third step consists of additional documents upload. Depending on the case, some Italian 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 have three processing times that fit every need and every pocket. Here are our options and the cost for each of them:
Standard processing – this is the cheapest option available on iVisa, and your application will be processed within three business days. For that, you need to pay a fee of $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.
Super Rush processing – if you need to be on the plane tomorrow, you can go for this one. The application is processed within just 1 business day, but as you can imagine it costs more. You will be charged $152.
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 Italian can be used only for tourism and family visits. It provides a single entry (no matter the visa type,) and it can only be used if you enter the country through Addis Ababa Bole International Airport. All the other points of entry require a consular visa at the moment.
