Other notable African countries that have policy of Visa-On-Arrival for Africans include Rwanda in East Africa and Ghana in West Africa.
Speaking at the Visa-On-Arrival for Africans, the CEO of the Ethiopian Airlines Group, Mr Tewolde Gebremariam, said “It is truly an honour and a special privilege to witness this historic and truly inspirational day. Ethiopian Airlines has been bringing Africa together and closer to the world for over seven decades. Today, Ethiopian Airlines flies to 60 African destinations and connects the continent to over 50 major international cities in 5 continents. Visa on arrival for fellow African brothers and sisters and more importantly, visa online, will greatly boost cross-border tourism, trade and investment, further deepening African integration.”
Ethiopian Airlines is one of the largest airlines in the African continent. The Ethiopian Immigration and Nationality Affairs Main Department, in collaboration with the national carrier, launched an e-visa service for all international visitors to Ethiopia in June.
Nigeria and few other African countries have long announced their own policy of Visa-On-Arrival for travelers and tourists, but implementation of the policy have been poorly managed, leading to inbound travelers disenchantment.
