Passport, Visa & Health Requirements

Passport, visa and health requirements vary from country to country. Contact your travel agent or the nearest Ethiopian ticket office for current passport, visa and health requirements of the countries you are planning to travel to.

Many countries require proof of return/onward and sufficient funds for your stay. Please contact the nearest Consulate of the country to which you are traveling to for additional information.

Passengers traveling on Ethiopian Airlines between Vienna and Stockholm who require entry visa to Schengen countries must have a valid multiple Schengen visa. Passengers holding single Schengen visa already used to enter Sweden or another Schengen country cannot travel on Ethiopian Airlines flight between Stockholm and Vienna. This is necessitated because the flight is operated as transit flight carrying international passengers beyond European airports.

Identification Cards (ID)

Please remember to have your government-issued picture ID card available at all times. Note also that you may be required to present proof of age (such as a birth certificate) at the airport for children whomay be traveling with you.

Customs Regulations

Customs regulations and procedures that apply to travelers entering or exiting vary from country to country and are changed frequently. Contact your travel agent or the nearest Ethiopian ticket office for current customs regulations of countries you are planning to travel to.

Agricultural Products

Several countries have restrictions regarding importation of agricultural products. Contact your travel agent or the nearest Ethiopian ticket office for current restrictions on importation and export of agricultural products.

Suggested Arrival Times

To make your trip as enjoyable as possible, please allow enough time for check-in, security screening and boarding.

Due to some lengthy security checkpoint waiting times, earlier arrivals are recommended. We recommend that you check in at least 3 hours before your flight is scheduled to depart.
