Ethiopia became one of the countries that decided to issue evisa. North Korean tourists no longer need to visit Ethiopian embassy to get a visa. You can apply online using iVisa’s services instead. However, you need to check your eligibility first to make sure that you can obtain the document. Simply use the Visa Checker located upper-right corner of iVisa’s website. Select your country of origin and add Ethiopia as your destination. The information will be displayed right away. Not only that but if you are eligible for an Ethiopia evisa, you can apply right away.
iVisa will do the heavy lifting but you still need to provide a few things to help with your application. Here is a list of what you need to provide:
North Korean valid passport – getting one is simple, and if you already have one, keep in mind that it should stay valid for at least another six months after you arrive in Ethiopia. Otherwise, your application will be denied.
Scanned copy of your passport – You should scan the entire booklet and give importance to the information page.
A digital passport-sized photo of yourself – preferably as recent as possible.
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 North Korean – the application form
Sometimes, forms can get complicated but iVisa’s form is not one of these. However, rest assured that iVisa has an amazing 24/7 support service for North Korean who may need assistance. You can give them a call so that can help you every step of the way.
The process consists of three simple steps. First, you need 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 will be payment and revision. Remember that you need provide correct information since mistakes might lead to application denial. Corrections are no longer possible and the price is non-refundable after your application is processed,
You may need to upload additional documents during the third step. Depending on the situation, some North Korean 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 only cost $87, and your application will be processed within three business days.
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 above are for the 30-day Ethiopia evisa. If you are interested in a 90-day visa, just add $20 to each options above.
The Ethiopia evisa for North Korean 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. Presentyly, all the other points of entry require a consular visa.
