How to Get an Eritrean Visa

The Eritrean visa is famously one of the world’s most difficult visas to attain. The ”North Korea of Africa” as it’s known, certainly doesn’t make it easy for you. At YPT however, we’ve made the process as simple as possible!

As of 2022 Eritrea allowed registered travel operators access to the visa on arrival scheme for tourists. With just a scan of your passport, we can arrange a visa on arrival into Asmara International Airport. The visa fee is $70 and paid in USD to the immigration officers.

 What do you need from me?

  • A completed YPT booking form
  • A scan of your passport (not the physical passport)

What do I need to collect the visa on arrival at Asmara airport?

  • Your passport
  • A completed application form (pick up there and simply fill out)
  • $70USD cash

Is it a full-page visa sticker?

Yes! See the attached image.
