among the measures taken.

sector, the e-visa service allows international
tourists to enjoy hassle-free visa processing which saves their time,
energy and cost. The online service has made travel to Ethiopia
convenient, dependable and easy. Between July 2018 and June 2019,
thousands of travelers have secured their visa online to
attend conferences in Ethiopia. Government ministries, regional and
international organizations as well as NGOs are already reaping the
benefits of online visa services for conference participants.
conference organizers issue authorized invitation, participants can
process their visa online by uploading the
invitation letter on the e-visa website: www.evisa.gov.et. The system
also allows applicants to pay visa processing fees effortlessly through
online payment solutions.
“We found the e-visa system extraordinarily easy to do. Very user friendly,” says Abel Alemu, Ethiopian Airlines Southern African Regional Manager.
“The Customer service by Immigration Personnel was very good. Gone are the days when international passengers had to visit Ethiopian embassies overseas to process visa requests. The e-visa service marks a quantum leap on the part of Ethiopia, and underscores the country’s commitment to easing its visa services for international tourists who travel to the country. With its key place in Africa’s diplomacy, convenient e-visa service, expanding conference facilities, and an ever growing flag-carrier with seamless service, Ethiopia is set to hold a prime spot on the global map of conferences and exhibitions in the years to come.” concludes Alemu.
