Visa to Djibouti

When planning a trip to Djibouti, citizens of most countries should take care of obtaining a visa to enter this African country in advance. Visa processing takes up to 5 working days over a month, so it is worth applying a month or more before your intended travel date.

Since 2018, a convenient online e-visa is available in Djibouti, which saves time on processing. A citizen can obtain such a visa without leaving home. The e-visa comes for 14 days or 90 days and for single entry into the country. The validity of the visa is counted from the moment of the first entry into Djibouti. In addition to the electronic visa, you can apply for a regular visa at the Djibouti embassy, but it will take longer as it requires personal presence.

In order to obtain any visa, it is important to have no criminal record and no debts to the Djibouti government at the time of applying for a visa. Also, the authorities reserve the right to refuse entry into the country even with a visa if the person poses a security risk. Therefore, when planning a trip to Djibouti, it is better to apply for an e-visa online well in advance for a smooth entry into the country.

To avail our services, simply fill out the online application form on our website and we will get back to you. If you have any questions about obtaining a visa to Djibouti, please do not hesitate to contact us.
