Ethiopia to issue visa on arrival to Africans

ESAT News (October 8, 2018)

Ethiopia says it will meet the deadline set by the African Union for African travelers to get visa on arrival instead of applying prior to their trip.

The African Union has set a goal for a visa free travel within the continent by 2020.

Seychelles is so far the only country that requires no visas to all Africans.

Speaking at the opening of a bicameral parliament, President Mulatu Teshome says the country would strive to meet the deadline for a visa free Africa which he said help create continental unity.

The President said a visa free travel will also help boost the country’s tourism by increasing the volume of travelers to the country.
