Passport/Visa Note: Nationals of any country can obtain a visa on arrival in Djibouti, for a fee. Visas obtained on arrival are usually valid for up to one month, but immigration officials may grant a longer or shorter stay. It is advisable to arrange a visa in advance as relying on getting one on arrival is risky. All travellers must hold: (i) return or onward tickets; (ii) required entry documentation for their next destination; (iii) sufficient funds to cover their stay in Djibouti or a voucher if travelling in an organised tour. It is highly recommended that your passport has at least six months validity remaining after your intended date of departure from your travel destination. Immigration officials often apply different rules to those stated by travel agents and official sources.
