A new joint visa scheme has been launched for travel to Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda.
The new cross-border visa was announced at WTM yesterday at WTM and aims to boost tourism in East Africa.
It will cost GBP60 (US$100) for the joint visa, saving GBP18 on the current total price of the separate visas.
“Kenya is delighted to be joining hands with its neighbouring nations in a move that will benefit tourists visiting the diverse region and boost our respective tourism sectors. The cross-border visa will support intra-regional travel between the participating countries through new joint marketing and trade opportunities,” said Phyllis Kandie, Cabinet Secretary for East African Affairs, Commerce & Tourism Kenya.
Minister of Tourism, Wildlife and Antiquities of Uganda Hon Dr Maria Mutagamba, added: “We are proud to invite our future tourists to experience a more accessible eastern Africa region. Visitors to our region will benefit from the new, more convenient multi-nation visa and will see the improvements in security, immigration systems, infrastructure and capacity building that this system brings.”
