    General Information

    Climate

    • Ethiopia can be visited all year. The rainy season typically begins in June and ends in early-October. Heavier rains are expected in June to August, becoming light from September to early-October. The dry season generally starts in mid-October until May.
    • October to January is the most popular time to visit Ethiopia as the countryside is still green and sites of interest tend to be busy. From February to May, the scenery becomes dryer and browner during this period. The rainy seasons shouldn’t deter travel as there are fewer tourists and the landscape is strikingly lush.

    Language & Currency

    • Amharic is the official national language of Ethiopia. English, Arabic, Italian and French are widely spoken by many Ethiopians. There are over 83 languages spoken throughout Ethiopia. Outside of the larger cities and towns, indigenous languages are more likely to be spoken.
    • The local currency is the Ethiopian birr. Ethiopia is a, predominately, cash-based society. Access to cash machines is available in Addis Ababa; banking facilities are limited in most other areas. US dollars, Euros and Pound sterling can be exchanged in banks, foreign exchange bureaus and some of the larger hotels. Local currency is best for shopping, tipping and dining in local restaurants. Credit cards are accepted at only a very few outlets in Addis Ababa.

    Visa & Access

    • All foreign nationals require a visa for entry to Ethiopia. Please check with your local Ethiopian Embassy or our travel team for further information. Tourist visas can be obtained at Bole International Airport in Addis Ababa on arrival for visitors from the USA, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, China, Japan, Korea, Israel, Russia, the UK and all European Union nations. Multiple-entry visas are not available on arrival and be obtained in advance at any Ethiopian Embassy. Please note, visas on arrival are not available to visitors entering by land borders.
    • All international flights arrive and depart from Bole International Airport (ADD) in Addis Ababa.

    Health

    • At least 6-8 weeks before departure, please visit your local health care provider or travel clinic for any vaccination requirements and to discuss any other potential health risks, such as malaria (where applicable). All travellers should ensure they have a valid travel insurance policy in place.

    For any further questions on Ethiopia or your holiday, please reach out to our friendly travel team who are ready to assist with any information you require.
