Djibouti to Addis Ababa by train

I have read a number of reports about taking the train Addis - Djibouti, but has anyone undertaken the journey in the opposite direction?

Specifically, is it easy to buy tickets in Djibouti and is the border straightforward. I have read that an ethiopian evisa is not accepted at the land border - any comments?

Different reports. Few EU citizens took train from Addis to Djibouti, had no issues.

2 months ago TA member said he took train from Addis to Djibouti was not allowed in Djibouti via land border.

It realy depends on immgration.

Get Ethio Visa, before you arrive.

Also get Dji Visa from Addis.

Also ask Dji Embassy staff.
