Ethiopia Visa cost for Israeli citizens

You must pay two Ethiopia visa costs when applying for an Ethiopian visa online: the Ethiopia service charge and the Ethiopia Government fee.

  • Ethiopia Government Fee: The amount required to be paid to the Ethiopia Immigration Department before they would give you a visa. This is the fee that applicants for an eVisa must pay.
  • Ethiopia service fee: The service fee is based on the number of individuals covered by your application and the urgency with which you want the visa.

There are three different types of services available at Ethiopia Immigration Services :

  • Normal: For those who require an e-visa within 03 business days.
  • Urgent: For those who require an e-visa in 02 days.
  • Super urgent: Those who need an e-visa within 24 hours are deemed extremely urgent.

We also highly recommend that you obtain Ethiopia's COVID-19 insurance. When you are not in your home country, you will be protected against a range of hazards, including the COVID-19 pandemic, for a charge of US$ 299 per application. We also want to emphasize that this is an optional step that you can take based on your circumstances.

Ethiopian visa processing time from Israel

Normally, a visa from Israel to Ethiopia may be issued in 01 to 03 business days. Once all relevant documents and information have been provided, Ethiopian authorities will assess the application, paperwork, and fee payment. Applicants can utilize the convenient online visa portal to follow the status of their application.

Due to application issues or other situations, the procedure may take longer than usual. It is thus recommended that you allow at least 03 days for the visa to be processed and that you apply well in advance of your trip.

Residents of Israel who apply from their home country will get any visa correspondence or notices by email. The visa confirmation and an electronic copy of the visa will also be given to the applicant's email address.
