Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda finally launch single tourist visa
The Heads of State of Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda yesterday (20 Feb 2014) finally launched the long-awaited single East Africa Tourist Visa during the 4th Summit of the Northern Corridor Integration Summit (20 Feb 2014, Kampala). The new common visa, which was already introduced on 01 January 2014, makes the three partner states one single tourist destination and allows travellers to visit all three countries on just one visa. Each single tourist visa costs US$100, charged by the issuing country. The issuing country will take $40 while the others will each take $30. The visa is valid for 90 days. Authorities in Kenya will develop the sample application form for the multiple-entry visa and share it with Uganda and Rwanda for input within the coming two weeks. We'll keep you posted!
