Abstract:The advent of foreign nationals to Ethiopia is as old as the nation's contact with the outside world. The movement of these persons to and from Ethiopia was not, however, the subject of legislative activities until Ethiopia obtained its first and modern immigration legislation in 1915. This legislation and that which was issued subsequently included conditions on the basis of which the exclusion and deportation of foreign nationals could be administered. Proclamation no. 271/1969, which is currently in force, also contains provisions on exclusion and deportation. The first section of this article highlights the series of factors and customary practices which contributed to the exclusion and deportation of foreign nationals in pre-1915 Ethiopia; the second section introduces the pre-1969 immigration legislation; and the last section discusses the exclusion and deportation of foreign nationals in the light of present-day Ethiopian immigration law. Notes, ref., sum. in French.
