Ethiopian Origin ID Cards (Yellow Card)


If you are a foreign national of Ethiopian origin, you may apply for an Ethiopian-origin ID card.


Important information: 

Please note that applications can no longer be submitted in person at the Embassy. All new applications must be made online via the Digital INVEA website:


As part of the wide-ranging reforms being conducted across the Government in an effort to improve performance and service delivery, the Embassy is pleased to announce the digitisation of the majority of our consular services.


The Immigration Nationality and Vital Events Agency (INVEA) has commenced the Digital INVEA application aimed at modernising, simplifying, and integrating its service offering. This application, which aims to enhance customer satisfaction and convenience, will efficiently serve the Ethiopian community abroad by leveraging the power of technology in the ongoing delivery of services.


We, therefore, recommend all prospective customers to visit for access to Ethiopian I.D. card services (new applications and renewals), which are no longer being offered at the Embassy.


You can also download the Digital INVEA app for iOS and Android to get started today!
