The rule on the forfeiture of undeclared valuables applies to all passengers travelling to Ethiopia or transiting, including the prosecution of offenders of money laundering in line with Ethiopian laws.
The ministry, therefore, urges all prospective Nigerian travellers to please take note of this development and adhere strictly to avoid undue embarrassment at the airport.
meanwhile, the embassy of Nigeria in Addis Ababa is engaging the Ethiopian authorities to secure the release of undeclared monies seized from Nigerians.
