Visa to visit Ethiopia


I appreciate any advice on where to check for Visa requirements to visit Ethiopia (there is no embassy in my country). I intend to visit Addis Ababa for 3 days in Nov 2013 as a tourist (ie. not work related) and wonder if I need to apply for a visa. Thanks for any pointers.

Dio we assume you have Malaysian citizenship??? I have been to Kuching - what a lovely city ?


1. Try to contact your nearest Ethiopian Embassy - maybe Thailand ?

2. Look at the rules of the game.....eg on the website of the Eth Embassy in London.

Malaysia I am pretty sure is not on the list of nationalities who can get a visa on arrival here.

BUT some Eth govt stuff says that in addition to the 37 countries listed.....people from a country with no Eth Embassy can get visa on arrival....BUT I would not risk it unless you get that confirmed in an e mail from London or \Bangkok Embassy.

Thanks for your prompt advice.

I was initially told there is no Ethiopia Embassy in Kuala Lumpur but I have since found there is a Consulate. So I will contact them for help.

Sorry about my mistake. ;-)
