This is to inform all Nigerians/Passengers that the Ethiopian Customs and Revenue Authority (ECRA) has recently stepped up seizure of foreign currencies and valuables in excess of $3000 (Three thousand US Dollars) from passengers transiting Ethiopia without prior declaration to the custom authorities.
Please take note that this rule applies to all passengers travelling to Ethiopia or transiting through Ethiopia to other destinations provided they have to step out of the airport and subsequently return to board their connecting flights to their intended destinations.
Please note that transiting passengers who do not wish to declare monies in their possession can avail themselves of the use of safe deposit boxes placed at the transit areas of the Bole International Airport, Addis Ababa for safe keeping.
It is worthy of note that affected passengers stand the risk of being prosecuted for money laundering and jailed by the Ethiopian Authorities, apart from forfeiting all such undeclared monies.
