Why Kenyans cannot get free South African Visas yet

12 October 2016, 09:20 Ben Wangui

Nairobi - Kenyans cannot get free South African visas yet.

President Jacob Zuma who is on a 3-day state visit in the country said Tuesday that his country is still reviewing the visa regulations for Kenyans.

He expressed fears that free visas would expose his country since both Kenya and South Africa are home to foreigners.

“There are no loopholes that will be used by wrong people," he explained.

Currently, South Africans get Kenyan visas for free at the ports of entry, but Kenyans have to apply for South African visas that take five working days to be processed.

Zuma is the first serving South African President to visit Kenya.

During a joint press address, he said his visit came as part of "the broader agenda of the AU (African Union) to soften the borders in the continent so we could enhance intra-trade.

"Without intra-trade we have realised we cannot develop as a continent. All other ... continents are able to thrive because there is quick movement of goods and people."
