Do not travel to Ethiopia due to armed conflict, civil unrest, communications disruptions, crime, and the potential for terrorism and kidnapping in border areas.  Read the entire Travel Advisory.  U.S. citizens in Ethiopia should consider departing now using commercial options.

Travel to Ethiopia is unsafe at this time due to the ongoing armed conflict.  Incidents of civil unrest and ethnic violence may occur without warning.

Further escalation is likely, and may cause supply chain shortages, communications blackouts and travel disruptions.  The Ethiopian government declared a state of emergency on November 2, 2021.

The Government of Ethiopia has previously restricted or shut down internet, cellular data, and phone services during and after civil unrest. These restrictions impede the U.S. Embassy’s ability to communicate with, and provide consular services to, U.S. citizens in Ethiopia.

The U.S. Embassy has limited ability to provide emergency services to U.S. citizens outside of Addis Ababa. U.S. Embassy personnel are currently restricted from traveling outside of Addis Ababa city limits.

  1. Hypocrisy at it’s best!

    They helped to create Ethiopia’s problem, and now they are telling it’s citizens not to go there due to the situation.

    Listen to your spirit, and not the words of these serpents in high places.

    My family and I have already got our tickets, and will be going to Addis over the farange genna.

    Ethiopia we are coming!
