Passport Service


Please read the following carefully and fulfill all the requirements. Failure to fulfill the requirements may result in delaying the processing time or denial of the issuance of the passport.


* The Embassy of Ethiopia is currently issuing only a new Electronic passport that requires mandatory finger print. Therefore, all Ethiopians who want to obtain a replacement (lost or existing) passport or renewal of a passport should fulfill the following requirements.

* Those who have already submitted their finger prints upon receipt of an electronic passport earlier are not required to submit their fingerprints again. However, if you have an old /manual/ passport or was exempted from submitting your finger print due to your minor age then you should submit your finger print anew.

* Those who are minor under the age of 14 are exempted from providing finger prints.

* The Embassy also advise all applicants to submit their applications AT LEAST 45 DAYS AHEAD of their planned travel date or prior to applying for any other services that require a valid passport.

* If the Embassy requests you to submit an additional document, please send it within a week. If you are informed for the third time to submit the necessary document and if you fail to submit the requested document, the Embassy shall be obliged to send your original document back to you and you will be requested to apply anew.

* All applications must be sent via mail with an envelop which has a TRACKING NUMBER. The applications must also have a self-addressed, prepaid UPS, or USPS EXPRESS MAIL return envelop which has a tracking Number. You don't have to call the Embassy to check whether your application has been received or returned back to you since you have the option to track it online at the respective mailing company's website.
