All arriving passengers on Ethiopian Airlines flights are met by our Customer Relation Officers to guide them through to the Passport Control and Baggage Claim area or through the transit exit for connecting passengers.
Nationals of those countries allowed visas on arrival need to check with the Airport Immigration Office to enter Ethiopia. All others have to come with their entry visas and must pass through the Passport Control Counters.
