THE FOREIGN RESIDENTS IN UGANDA, RWANDA AND KENYA VISA FEES HAVE BEEN WAIVED – UGANDA TOURISM NEWS
The three countries under the Northern corridor Integration umbrella have waived off the Visa fees for the foreign residents in these states to freely undertake safaris in different destinations without hassle including safari tours in Uganda and Rwanda.
Uganda, Rwanda and Kenya resolved that these people should stop paying the $100 fee for the Single Tourism Visa for East Africa which is always valid for 90 days starting the 15th date of December last year. This is seen as a perfect move to enable these travellers to explore the range of attractions and activities in these countries including gorilla trekking safaris and tours in Uganda and Rwanda, Wildlife safari tours in Uganda and Kenya, cultural and heritage encounters in Uganda and Rwanda among others depending on their interests.
The move is intended at reaching out to the world as a unified destination with diverse experiences. This will be followed by joint marketing efforts like joint road shows and attempts will be made to lobby for a single stand during International tourism marketing events so as increase safari tours to East Africa including safari tours to Uganda and Rwanda.
The implementation of this initiative will follow an issuance of an interstate pass upon exiting the host state and visitor’s pass put in their passports upon arriving after presenting valid resident/work permits. However, other immigration procedures will be maintained.
