One of the countries that allow issuing of electronic visas is Ethiopia. With this, Japanese no longer need to go to Ethiopian embassy to get visa. You can just simply apply online using iVisa’s services. To make sure that you can get the document, you need to confirm your eligibility first. It can be done by using Visa Checker that is located upper-right corner of the website. Select your country of origin and add Ethiopia as your destination. The information will be displayed immediately. Not only that but if you are eligible for an Ethiopia evisa, you can apply on the spot.
iVisa created a very simple process for Japanese, and won’t require you 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:
Japanese 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.
Valid e-mail address – iVisa will send you a copy of your visa even if the visa is linked to your passport electronically. You will be required to show it at the immigration office. The delivery system is via e-mail in PDF format, so make sure that you provide a valid and accurate e-mail address.
Ethiopia evisa for Japanese – the application form
iVisa’s form is very simple and not complicated unlike any other forms. Should you need further help, you may call iVisa’s amazing 24/7 support service for Japanese that can help you every step of the way.
The process contains three easy steps. First, you will be asked to fill in your general information like name, address, passport info, and so on. Here, you must also choose a processing time and the visa type (30-day or 90-day stay.). Make sure that you have all the information as both factors will affect the cost of your visa.
The second step is about payment and revision. It is important that you provide correct information since errors can lead to denial of application. Once your application is processed, corrections are no longer possible, and the fee is non-refundable.
The final step consists of additional documents upload. Depending on the case, some Japanese will be required to upload several things. Hit the submit button once you’re done and wait for your visa to arrive via e-mail.
Processing time and fees
iVisa provides three processing times that is perfect for every need and every pocket. Here are our options and the corresponding costs:
Standard processing – the cheapest option available on iVisa, and your application will be processed within three business days. For that, it costs $87.
Rush processing – here, 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 your flight is on the next day, you can choose this one. The application is processed within just 1 business day for the price of $152.
These fees stated above are for the 30-day Ethiopia evisa. If you want a 90-day visa, just add $20 to each price above.
The Ethiopia evisa for Japanese is valid only for tourism and family visits. It allows 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.
