Addis Ababa transfer

Hi

I am transitting through Addis Ababa for 9hrs 30 minutes and would like to explore the city. Can anyone tell me what is the average queuing time to obtain a transit visa?

Thanks

Addis Airport has 8 million transiters per year so they are very much geared up to get people transferred quickly..

For justin..have now sent u a message or two...apologies for delay.

Your hotel bus will want to take you back 3 or 4 hours before 2nd flight...but2 hours is fine as you will already have boarding pass forflight 2..

So consider going to a cultural restaurant say 7 to 8.30.

Yod Abyssinia and Habesha 2000 are near the airport.butdepending on where your hotel is you might want to take hand baggage with you on a tour....but minimise it....especially if your guide is using public transport..

Will send you a second message.
