"The procedure to get permits is very complicated and involves several Ethiopian Ministries. Basically, the Ethiopian Embassy in D.C. (www.ethiopianembassy.org), or your resident country, has to write The Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Addis. The Ministry Of Foreign Affairs then writes to the Ministry of Communications to tell them to give you a permit. How long this will take, no one can say because it's a new procedure. We are in the process of doing this now, so we should know more at a later date."
