UniVisa to enable tourists travel freely across Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda

14 October 2016, 13:50 Ben Wangui

Nairobi - Citizens of Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda will now be able to tour any part of the three countries using one identification document. This comes about after the launch of the Univisa at KICC on  Wednesday.

UniVisa is a traveling document that lets tourists tour a number of countries without having to get separate costly visas for each country. It is ideal for those who plan to visit multiple countries at the same time.

The Cabinet Secretary for Tourism Najib Balala said the UniVisa will cost 150 US dollars (about Ksh 15,000), which is more affordable to the citizens easing tourist accessibility to the three countries as well as enhancing regional tourism.

However, the CS noted that Burundi and Tanzania are not part of this coalition due to fear of tourism competition, but hopes they will join soon.  “We want them on board, but maybe they need time to appreciate the good. When they are ready, the doors are wide open,” said the Cs during the launch.

He said the Standard Gauge Railway (SGR) will be a blessing for tourism, and added that it will not destruct the environment as speculated but it will ease transport across the East Africa region.

Uganda Minister of Tourism Maria Mutagamba said Uganda is committed to the UniVisa programme. “As a region, we are not competing with each other but complementing each other and competing with the world,” she said, adding that regional tourism is very crucial to the economy.

She urged the East African media to create awareness on the importance of tourism.
