COVID-19: Entry Requirements for Travellers to Ethiopia

7 Aug 2020

Amid the ongoing global coronavirus pandemic, new health guidelines have been put in place for all travellers entering Ethiopia.

Effective immediately:

    1. All travellers arriving at Bole International Airport who provide a certificate showing a negative COVID-19 RT-PCR antigen test, taken within 72 hours of your arrival to Ethiopia will be subject to mandatory self-isolation at home, for 14 days. Additionally, travellers will be required to provide a sample upon arrival. Travellers who do not have a negative COVID-19 RT-PCR test will be placed into mandatory quarantine for 7 days, at a designated site. After 7 days, you will be tested for coronavirus and if you test negative, you will be required to self-isolate at home for the remaining 7 days.
    2. Travellers who provide RDT antibody tests will be quarantined for 7 days at a designated site. After 7 days, you will be tested for coronavirus and if you test negative, you will be required to self-isolate at home for the remaining 7 days.
    3. Ethiopian returnees are required to consult with their nearest Ethiopian Embassy or Consulate before planning their trip to Ethiopia. This is to help returnees obtain the correct information about getting tested at the country of origin. Returnees who cannot provide a negative RT-PCR COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours of arrival to Ethiopia will be placed into mandatory quarantine for 7 days at a designated site.
    4. For diplomats, the previous circular still applies.
