The migration and development issue has expanded to include the potential of remittances. This paper describes the effects of remittance, the flows of remittance to Ethiopia and measures taken by government of Ethiopia to increase remittance. Given the lack of accurate information on the informal flows and the pattern of remittance to Ethiopia the study found a high potential of flow of remittances that can be remitted to the country. Following that, some measures that can help to realize the potential in the near future are recommended.
