Staying in Ethiopia for longer than the visa duration

The embassy website says, ‘If you wish to stay in Ethiopia for a longer period than that which has been indicated in your visa, you are required to apply for an extension at the Main Department for Immigration Office in Addis Ababa.”

Visa Validity

Visa is valid from the date of issuance and not from the date of entry into Ethiopia. Therefore, please consider the time it takes for us to receive, process and complete your visa with the Ethiopian embassy and the time to return your visa to you before choosing the length of validity for your visa.

Connecting Flights

People passing through the Addis Ababa Bole International Airport catching a connecting flight are not in need of a visa as long as they do not leave the airport and are only waiting there for a few hours.
