Joint visa for East African tourists

Joint visa for East African tourists

Kenya is to be part of a new joint visa scheme with Uganda and Rwanda which will take effect on January 1st 2014. At present tourists travelling between the neighbouring East African countries must obtain a separate visa for each nation, therefore Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda are partnering in order to simplify travel arrangements for holidaymakers, as well as creating a new brand for the whole region in turn opening up opportunities for joint marketing campaigns.
