I'm french and I live in Hong Kong, I would like to visit Eritrea for two weeks in July but there is no Eritrean consulate in Hong Kong and I have to go to Beijing, it's not convenient and expensive.
Do you know another way to get a visa from Hong Kong?
I'm an American and really want to visit Eritrea but know the visa process can be very very difficult particularly for Americans (although I did read that one post below where I guy got it in a week! so I'm hoping they're letting up a bit). As such I am thinking about hiring a travel company to help with the visa process and to get me a driver guide etc. I just would like to know if these guys are reliable and trustworthy?? I'd rather use Oasis over Undiscovered Destinations only because doing…
I'm based in Italy and so it is expensive to get my hands on dollars. However, every post I have seen lists prices in dollars. Are euros as widely accepted or does Eritrea run on dollars? Thanks.
Came back from a trip to Eritrea in late March, early April 2016.
Here are some perhaps useful information:
1. Exchange rate: official 1 USD = 15 Nakfa, Blackmarket 1 USD = 20 Nakfa
2. Driving yourself (thanks jensgustav): get your western drivers licence converted into a local at the ministry of transportation & communication (Taxi costs Nakfa 150 from City Center to the outskirts). Bring 2 passport sized photos, copies of your passport, copy of your drivers licence (copy service available at…
I am planning to go to Asmara for a couple of days in late May. Therefore, I would be interested, if anybody has been in Eritrea recently and knows, if after the change to the new Nakfa in late 2015 black market exchange has been re-instated? What would be the black market exchange rate now? The official one according to Oasis Travel is 1:15 to the USD.
And something else: Currently Turkish Airlines sells rather cheap tickets from several German airports to Asmara (around 400 Euro…
Hi guys! I tried to make a visa to go to Eritrea a couple of times. I applied in Paris (cause i am spanish and we don´t have Eritrean embassy in Spain so they told me that I had to do it in France) I went personally to Paris and gave all the paperwork they were asking me and they told me that they will contact me but nothing happen. After few months of waiting and working i tried again, but this time i did through a visa arrangement company to do all the paperwork and after few months waiting no…

As the information for Eritrea is fairly limited, I would like to write down my experience (I visited at end of December to beginning of January for 9 days).
So all the flights leave and arrive the airport is at the most awkward time! Turkish Airlines, Qatar Airways, FlyDubai and Egypt Air all arrives/leaves Asmara around 1am to 4am. Apparently Eritrean authority does not want foreigners to see Asmara from the sky (I’m not really sure if this is true…) . The pickup to the airport from…
