Ethiopia offers e-visas to MICE participants
Ethiopian Immigration and Nationality Affairs main Department in collaboration with Ethiopian Airlines Group launched e-visa services for African and international participants of Meetings, Incentives, Conferences, and Exhibitions (MICE) held in Ethiopia effective September 20, 2017. With this, MICE travellers to Ethiopia will be able to issue their visas online, book, pay and check-in their flight with Ethiopian, all online.
Ethiopian Airlines' Group CEO Tewolde Gebre Mariam, remarked, “With the immense potential for conference tourism, Ethiopia has still a lot to do to tap into the sector and the launching of an e-visa service for MICE is an impetus for the exponential demand of Ethiopia’s conference tourism; saving time and cost besides inducing a modern online visa application process with more simplicity and efficiency. Ethiopian offers special fares and discounts besides availing custom designed tour packages to various tourist sites in the country. I thank our IT team and colleagues at Ethiopian Immigration and Nationality Affairs main Department for a gratifying collaboration.”
