Nigerians will no longer be granted visas on arrival in Ethiopia, according to a government announcement. This was announced in a statement sent by the East African country to its travel partners; which stated that visitors must secure their visas from the embassy before to entering the country.
Additionally, it was found that “passengers having a stopover in Addis and traveling to; Zanzibar, Seychelles, Lusaka, Lilongwe, Harare, Cape Town, etc., are not affected by the prohibition and do not need a transit visa for their flights.”
Similarly, it required Nigerians and visitors from 42 other countries to present confirmation of yellow fever vaccination cards at the country’s borders. The motivations for this policy’s implementation are still a mystery.
