Ethiopia to offer free visa visitation from all African countries

Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed has revealed that the country
will “very soon” follow Rwanda’s example allowing all Africans to
travel to the country without visas. The policy will open up the east
African country to African visitors, and it will undoubtedly ease the
free movement of African nationals and boost tourism.

Addis Ababa. Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed has revealed
that the country will “very soon” follow Rwanda’s example
allowing all Africans to travel to the country without visas.
The plan was revealed during a state banquet hosted by Prime
Minister Abiy for Rwandan President Paul Kagame who is in
Ethiopia on a three-day official visit. The two leaders held bilateral
talks at the National Palace in Addis Ababa, and made a
commitment to strengthen relationships in key sectors, which
include defence, and air services.

While Prime Minister Abiy did not give specific details of the plan
to allow all Africans to travel to Ethiopia without visas, the
proposal is a laudable step to open Africa’s borders. The policy will
open up the east African country to African visitors, and it will
undoubtedly ease the free movement of African nationals and
boost tourism.

As part of the visit, President Kagame also toured Hawassa
Industrial Park which has attracted 18 leading global apparel and
textile companies.
