Djibouti Evisa: More information
All foreign citizens travelling to Djibouti must apply for a visa at the embassy or an electronic visa before entering the country.
The only nationalities exempt from visa requirements are Singapore and China. All other citizens are required to apply for a visa. Most nationalities can apply for a visa online, which has been available since 2018. This visa greatly speeds up the application process and avoids unnecessary travel.
Depending on which Djibouti e-Visa you apply for, it will allow you a 14- or 90-day tourist or business stay. In either case, the visa allows only a single entry to the country.
To be approved for an entry visa, you must not have a criminal record or any outstanding debt to the government of Djibouti. The government authorities reserve the right of admission and will deny entry to the country, even with an approved visa, to persons who may represent a threat to national security or interests.
