The Eastern Africa spirit of unity is bound to grow stronger as Kenya, Rwanda and Uganda are now planning to introduce a joint East African visa from 1 January 2014.
The Kenya, Rwanda and Uganda Ministers and High Commissioner officially made the announcement of the new cross-border visa this week at the Rwanda Development Board Stand at this year’s World Travel Market held annually at the Excel London.

The Visa is just not about it all; at the moment  each country in East Africa  has their own separate passports, so Kenya, Rwanda and Uganda are partnering so as to make traveling across the border simpler which will be very convenient for holidaymakers as well as creating a new brand for the whole region in turn opening up opportunities for joint marketing campaigns.

Uganda’s Minister of Tourism, Wildlife and Antiquities of Uganda Hon Dr Maria Mutagamba, commented: “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.”

“Our three Presidents are strong believers in Regional integration, including in the management of our tourism assets. They changed Rwanda to coordinate the transition to our single tourism visa. Six months later, we are happy to announce the utilization of this objective. Single visa, one destination,” noted the High Commissioner of Rwanda to the United Kingdom, His Excellency Williams Nkurunziza.
