Tourist Information in Djibouti Road

Permission papers (Birr500 per person for the whole Afar region) to visit the lakes around Asaita and to enter the Danakil Depression are handed out at this office in the large administrative building on the way into Semera. If you only want to visit the lakes around Asaita, it costs Birr200. This can be processed in advance by emailing your application. If you're on an organised tour, your operator will handle the application on your behalf.
