EU Visa restriction imposed on Ethiopian citizens unfair: MoFA Spokesperson

The Visa restriction imposed by the European Union Council on Ethiopian citizens is unfair. Ethiopia has informed the European Union Council about the visa restriction decision regarding Ethiopians.

The council decided that people from Ethiopia will have to wait 45 days instead of 15 days for their EU visa to be processed. The decision is unfair.

A national committee has been established to investigate citizens who are returning to the country after their case has been investigated and is working with the union.
