Eritrea Visa

How do you get an Eritrea visa? Just how hard is the process? Well, it’s famously not the easiest visa to get. But, it’s not impossible. 

The first thing you need to do is get in touch with a licensed Eritrean tour operator. We at Rocky Road are experts in getting people to this mysterious and misunderstood land. Rocky Road Travel has multiple contacts in Asmara and will make sure that the Eritrea visa process runs as smoothly as possible. When you sign up for one of our Eritrea tours, we will forward your visa application to our partners in Asmara who in turn will apply at the ministry of tourism. Once approved, they will issue a letter of invitation and notify the Eritrean embassy that you wish to apply from. Our best advice is to apply with us as early as possible. The process can take quite a while, but 99% of the time it is successful in the end.

The Eritrea visa rules constantly change, so always get in touch with us for the most up-to-date info. If you have an embassy in your country, then you apply for the visa from there, if not, then you may qualify for a visa on arrival. This is the best option by far, if they are offering it. You just need to print off an invitation letter and present it on arrival at Asmara airport. They will then put the visa straight in your passport.

What’s there to see and do in Eritrea? Plenty! World heritage city Asmara is compatible to an open-air museum. It boasts some of the best colonial architecture in Africa. Incredible scenery from the highlands to the Red Sea coastline awaits every intrepid traveller. Eritrea is an untouched gem, cut off from the world and stuck in time.
