US citizens can now enjoy an online process to get their visas if they want to visit Ethiopia. The services are provided by iVisa, a visa expediting company that guarantees superior customer service. That, along with the efficiency of the process, attracts thousands of clients who declare themselves satisfied with the experience. You can be one of those people as well.
What do you need?
You barely need anything to get started, and if you already have a passport, chances are you have everything you need. Here is a list of required documents:
Passport – you cannot go anywhere without it, and Ethiopia is no different. You need a valid passport, and it needs to maintain its validity at least six more months from your arrival date in Ethiopia.
Digital copy of your passport – the primary interest is the information page, but you should scan it all.
Digital passport-sized photo of you – the more recent, the better.
Residence permit – this condition is applicable to US citizens who reside in a country other than the US. However, a letter or a visa sticker in your passport is enough.
Ethiopia visa application
Once you put together all the documents, you can move on to the next step, which is the application form. The form is straightforward, but if you need any help filling it in, iVisa has an excellent 24/7 support service. Just give them a call, and they will help you every step of the way.
The application will ask you to insert a few elementary things. First, you need to put in your basic information and select the processing time for your application. Then, you need to revise everything and make the payment. Speaking of that, you can make the payment to iVisa using a credit or a debit card. If you have a Paypal account, you can use that as well. The last thing you need to do is upload additional documents (the ones listed above.) There you have it. After you finish all that, you can submit your application, and the visa will arrive via email in PDF format in the timeframe of your choosing.
Ethiopia visa fees
You will be charged according to which type of visa you want and the processing time you select when you apply. There are two types of Ethiopia eVisas: the 30-day visa and the 90-day visa. There is a difference between the price, below you will find the price of the 30-day visa. The 90-day visa could cost higher. As for the processing time, you have three options, and they are as follows:
Standard – your application will be processed within 72 hours and will cost you USD 87.00. It is the cheapest option you have.
Rush – your Ethiopia eVisa will be ready within 48 hours, and the fee is USD 117.00.
Super Rush – this is the fastest and most expensive option. Your visa will arrive in your email inbox in just 12 hours, but you will be charged USD 152.00 for it.
Delays may occur, but that does not happen often. Even so, you will be notified via email if and when that happens. Other than that, iVisa provides an excellent service, and you will be more than satisfied with the experience.
