Do it one day before it expires. You will pay a fine if you overstay.

Renewal ie extension 120$ i think.

I am not sure about this.

Is he on business or tourist visa.

If he is on a tourist visa and admits to working, they may not be happy.

In that case, probably best if the Ethiopian based company or organisation who got him the business visa in the first place, help him get it extended.

Yes you can a get Visa Extension at the main Main Department for Immigration and Nationality Affairs, Addis ababa .

If you have a slight plan to Extend your stay you m better get 3 month Visa prior to your arrival.

Have you heard about the new online visa application system.
