Suggestions and tips
We strongly recommend you purchase travel medical insurance before you arrive. Familiarize yourself with your policy and make sure it covers the activities you wish to partake in during your visit.
For example, sometimes trekking may be excluded from your insurance policy. It is also important to know whether your policy will reimburse you for your expenses later, or will reimburse the providers immediately.
Your insurance should also cover emergency transport to get you to a hospital in a major city or home.
Since March 23,2020, there has been an obligatory quarantine procedure for all passengers arriving in the country.you must have a medical certificate proving that you tested negative for COVID-19 with a RT-PCR test within 5 days before flying. A rapid diagnostic test (RDT antibody test) will not be accepted for this purpose. It is then necessary to self-isolate at the traveler’s home or accommodation for 14 days.
if you arrive without the medical certificate,u will be tested on arrival and quarantined at a designated hotel, such as the Ethiopian Skylight Hotel, or a special quarantine center for 7 days.This is paid at Your own expense.After the first week, You will be retested and permitted to self-isolate at your Hotel for the remaining 7 days.
The fastest way is by plane. Ethiopian Airlines has a great network of internal flights to all the major tourist destinations. If you fly into the country on Ethiopian Airlines, you then qualify for a discount on the price.
There are two main bus companies (Selam Bus and Sky Bus) that also service most of the main cities. This can be a great way to see the countryside and the changing landscapes.
If you are going off the beaten path, there won’t be many public transport options so hiring a private vehicle is really the only way to go.
