Visa formalities


Ethiopian Aviation University (ETAU) arranges student visas as follows.

  • Student Residence visas can be provided to all International students.
  • Students are responsible to settle the visa charges upon signing the contractual agreement for admission.
  • The Student Residence visa is normally valid for one year and is renewable for returning students. The processing charges will be borne by the student whenever renewed.
  • If a student wishes to withdraw from the program/semester, prior to the expiry date of the visa, the visa must be canceled immediately, and the student has to leave ETAU or seek another visa sponsor. If a student wishes to re-register at ETAU, a new visa will be provided.
  • Students whose visa applications are rejected by Ethiopian Immigration will get their tuition fees (but not registration fees) refunded, and on a pro-rata basis for returning students. Any other official processing charges incurred will be borne by the student.
  • Graduated students must report to the visa section at ETAU to cancel their visas immediately after receiving their final exam grades; failure to do so will result in penalties and fines.
