EAC member states to start single tourist visa next month

museveni

President Museveni said yesterday that with effect from next month, a single tourist visa will be implemented for the East African Community member states. He said this costs only $100 (about Shs247,000) which will be shared among the member states. Under the arrangement the country that issues a tourist visa will get $10 and the $90 will shared by all. He said discussions with President Jakaya Kikwete of Tanzania were on-going to replicate similar reforms on the Central Corridor.

This will be a wonderful policy for the tourism industry that can only continue to grow. For more on this read the Daily Monitor
