ABOUT Eritrea Carnival

line-text
Istanbul , Turkey | 2017

Eritrea Carnival 2017 is as the simplicity and complication of society, culture and entertainment; three terms that every one of us might interpret his way, but we all consent that we need them and we need to understand them as well. Since other aspects of our life, as Eritrean expats, refugees or migrants such as political, ideological or other similar activities had been and are dealt with, in this or that way, by a diversity of institutions, organizations or associations, we, in Totil group thought it is high time for a specialized entity to, at least contribute if not nurture, our socio-cultural and entertainment activities.

frequently asked questions

What is the difference between this carnival and other Eritrean events?

The major difference lies in the concept and objectives of Eritrea Carnival 2017, that it is designed to meet the socio-cultural and entertainment needs of the Eritrean communities in diaspora, by providing innovative programs and activities that contribute to filling this gap. Therefor, and here comes a related major difference, it definitely has nothing to do with political, ideological, religious, ethnical or regional activities, be it in its organization, performances or final output and assessment.

Thousands of Eritreans are expected to come for the carnival, how can they handle and manage their booking, reservation and other tourist arrangements and services?

Because of this TOTIL TOURISM has designed a number of service packages specially tailored for the Carnival participants including tickets, hotels’ reservation transportation to and from airport, tickets for one or all payable activities “many activities need no tickets” in addition to one all-inclusive package that covers your journey from A to Z you can find details in this website.

Who is behind the idea of the carnival?

The Carnival is organized by TOTIL GROUP, a Turkey licensed company owned by Eritrean expats living in Istanbul. The company has an outstanding records in the field of culture and tourism in Turkey, for example it was chosen the company of the year in Turkey in 2013 and it is the first non-Turkish company to launch a publication and media production institution and a huge bookstore in the center of Istanbul inaugurated by the director of culture and tourism in Istanbul.

Does it need a visa to enter Turkey? How can I get it?

It differs from a country to another, some are required to have visa while others are exempted e.g. Passport holders with a valid Schengen members or USA, UK, Ireland visa or residence permit may get their one month period single entry e-Visas via the website www.evisa.gov.tr. For citizens of other countries and further information please check http://www.mfa.gov.tr/visa-information-for-foreigners.en.mfa.

Why Turkey, Istanbul particularly, and not any other place?

Simply because it is the place where the distance between Cultures, Communities and Climates is abridged, it belongs to both the west and east and it is the ideal linking bridge between them, let alone its richness of the most attractive historical and archeological sites along with the huge tourism facilities and capabilities, and of course, it is only a stone’s throw away from both sides of the world.

Can I bring my children with me?

One of the important factors that motivated the organizers is the present and future of the new generation born or raised in diaspora, for them it is an opportunity to meet each other, communicate with Eritrean children from other countries and cultures and, most important, make direct contact with homeland cultures, arts and traditions. There is also programs and activities designed for children within the Carnival schedule.

When does the carnival open and when does it conclude?

Tuesday/  /2017 is the opening day and the Carnival continues for three days.
