Rwanda, Kenya
and Uganda have launched the Single East Africa Tourist Visa, which makes the
three partner East African nations a single tourist destination.
The visa
was first issued on Thursday by presidents of the countries in Uganda’s
capital, at a meeting dubbed the Fourth Northern Corridor Integration Projects
Summit.
At the
ceremony in Kampala, the Heads of States gave out three dummy Tourist Visas to
tourists from Canada, UK and Spain.
President
Paul Kagame, Uhuru Kenyatta of Kenya, and their host, Yoweri Museveni of
Uganda, also launched use of national Identity Cards, student cards and voter’s
cards by the citizens to travel across the participating countries.
Rica
Rwigamba, the head of tourism department at the Rwanda Development Board (RDB),
said the single tourist visa will make East Africa compete with other top
tourist destinations across the world.
“With
this Visa, tourists have many choices of getting value for their money by
seeing more in just one trip across the three countries,” she said.
Laia Sole
Amat, a tourist from Barcelona, Spain, who received a dummy visa from President
Kagame described the single tourist visa as a great opportunity for many people
from the west and beyond.
“It is
amazing. This is my first visit to East Africa and I am really happy that this
is happening now. Many people will love to make use of this visa,” she said.
Each
single tourist visa goes for US$100, charged by the issuing country. The
issuing country will take $40 while the others will each take $30.
Since
June last year the three countries have pursued several joint integration
initiatives, especially cross-border infrastructure projects, as well as other
schemes designed to ease movement of people and goods and services across the
region.

The countries, during the summit also agreed to
develop a joint power generation project to increase power supply in the
region.
