Are there currently restrictions on travel to Addis Ababa related to COVID-19?

Yes, there are currently restrictions on flights to Addis Ababa along with the rest of Ethiopia. Before you book or search for flights, consider the following restrictions: Ethiopia has closed its land borders, but airports remain open. Addis Ababa Bole International Airport (and other international ports of arrival) have put in place additional measures to screen passengers arriving, departing or transiting through Ethiopia. Screening may include temperature measurements, completing a health screening questionnaire and answering questions from health officials. This will include checks on recent travel to affected areas and your accommodation details for your self-isolation. Travelers will also be tested again prior to leaving the airport. Travelers who tests positive for the virus but displays only mild symptoms will be required to remain in self-isolation for a further 14 days (where possible). They may be tested again prior to the end of self-isolation. If they cannot self-isolate they will need to stay at a government designated isolation center until they have recovered and tested negative with follow up tests. Those with more serious symptoms may be taken to a government designated isolation facility or hospital for treatment. All travelers arriving at Bole International airport should bring a medical certificate with a negative COVID-19 RT-PCR test issued at most 120 hours before arrival starting from the time sample is given. Travelers are subject to a 14-days mandatory self-quarantine at their home and also required to give sample upon arrival. Any travelers arriving without a negative COVID-19 RT-PCR certificate are subject to medical screening and quarantine for 14 days. The first 7 days will be at a government-designated facility at their own expense and the remaining 7 days at home. Travelers with an onward ticket to another destination may transit in Ethiopian airports, as long as the transit time is under 72 hours. Travelers transiting for 8 hours or less can remain in the departure lounge of the airport. For transits over 8 hours, you will be taken to a designated transit hotel for the duration of your stay. Transit travelers are subject to medical screening.. If you are looking to book a trip to Addis Ababa and are outside of the restricted areas, please take the proper precautions and stay informed about traveling during COVID-19.

Best Time to Fly to Addis Ababa

For many tourists, the dates on which they choose to travel to Ethiopia depend on the weather. The rainy season in Addis Ababa tends to last from March to September, and the wet conditions can make transport a little slower. The dry season, which falls outside these dates, enables you to make the most of being outside in the city, though travel to Ethiopia can be a little more expensive in the drier months. Visit during a national holiday in Ethiopia and you will be able to mingle with the locals who are in a festive mood, as well as fellow tourists. Gena, the Ethiopian Christmas, falls on January the 7th each year, and is traditionally a period of great festivity.

Getting around Addis Ababa

The main mode of transport in the city is the ‘blue donkey’, i.e. a blue and white-colored Toyota HiAce which acts much like a communal taxi. There are hundreds of these dotted throughout the city: just hail one, pay a small fare, and sit amid other commuters in the van as you get to your destination. When it comes to exploring the markets and similar sites though, the best way to go is on foot. That way you can weave through the jammed traffic and other pedestrians with ease.
