EAC Single Tourist Visa Launched in Washington

The East African single tourist visa was launched in Washington D.C by the ambassadors of Rwanda, Kenya and Uganda to US, in a bid to attract more tourists to the region.

The launch was attended by officials from the US Department of State and visa agencies in Washington DC. Others present included members of the US business community and civil society organisations.

Since its introduction, tour agents say the document has eased movement of tourists by eliminating bureaucratic tendencies.
