Visiting my girlfriend - Adis Ababa Ethiopia
Hi there, I'm looking to visit my girlfriend in Adis Ababa. We'll be meeting for the first time actually. I just wanted to know what all the requirements are if I will be travelling from O.R Tambo in Johannesburg. I've never been to Ethiopia before, so how do I aquire visas and get information about hotels?

South Africa is a great country with a great peoples.
But those one who is wirking in South Africa Embassy at Addis Ababa, have a big problem. If someone applied for a visa with proper documents they must give a visa or if they reject they must give a proper rejection paper, but what they do is the reverse, i really doubt that if the higher officials knows about it. Generally they are wrong we did not expect humiliation and disrespect from such a respected embassy. I think the officers who are dealing with the visa section shoud reshuffled. Otherwise it will disgrace the image of the Embassy.

Hope you have got my idea.
