Unlike many Visas that starts its validity from the date it's issued, the Ethiopian eVisa's validity starts from when you intend on entering the country. So your eVisa will be valid for 30 or 90 days from your intended arrival date to Ethiopia, depending on the eVisa type you choose.
- NOTE: The validity period is different than the duration of stay which is 30 or 90 days. Duration of stay CANNOT exceed the validity period of the visa. For example, if you change your plans after the visa is issued and your arrival date is 10 days later than what is on the eVisa, your validity is 20 or 80 days. Thus, the maximum duration of your stay is 20 or 80 days.
