Addis Ababa January 30, 2018 Ethiopia has lifted the ban on Ethiopian citizens traveling to the Middle East in search of jobs, the Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs said.

Ethiopia banned its citizens from traveling to the countries in the region in 2013 due to the conditions of Ethiopians who faced brutality in the hands of their employers.

The government put the restriction four years ago until binding bilateral labor agreements would be concluded with the countries in the region.

The government has already concluded bilateral labor agreements with Jordan and Kuwait, while preparation is underway to sign similar agreements with Lebanon, UAE and Bahrain.
