Travel

For international exhibitors:

Due to the limited time left for the expo, you are strongly encouraged to travel with your exhibit items as extra/excess luggage.  In order to avoid problems with customs upon your arrival, please follow the steps below:

  • Send us the list of items you are bringing with you (no need to list your personal laptops and small camera)
  • The list should be presented as a proper packing list, indication description of item, quantity, and whether the item(s) will be distributed at the expo for free or if the items will leave the country at the end of the event. The list should be on your company letterhead
  • Indicate the full name, passport number and citizenship along with confirmed flight details of arrival and return (date, time, flight #) of the person carrying the items into the country
  • The Ministry of ICT will review the list and advise you if the items will raise concerns, if you can leave them behind or if you have to return them to your country at the conclusion, etc.
  • The list must be received no later than June 15, 2017 at info@ictexpoethiopia.com & mintamir@ictexpoethiopia.com
  • The Ministry of ICT will send a notification to the Ethiopian Revenues and Customs Authority at the airport and a copy to you so that the process upon you arrival is facilitated. You might be asked to pay duties on the items – the notification will only confirm that you are expected to arrive with said items and that the items are indeed for the expo.  The notification will not waive any duties the customs authority may be mandated to levy.
