Ethiopian Origin ID

If you are a foreign national of Ethiopian origin, you may apply for an Ethiopian-origin ID card.


All applications must be made in person at the Embassy as you will be required to provide fingerprints.


If you wish to add children (under 18) to your ID card, you must present two copies of a legal document showing your relations, i.e. legalized Birth certificate.

Ethiopian Origin ID cards are valid for five years. If not renewed in time (within a year since its expiry date), it will be considered as if it were returned. Please note that all applicants are required to pick up the ID cards in person at the Consular Services at the embassy.
