KENYA – Waiving Visas for African Nationals
November 2, 2023
The government of Kenya is moving to eliminate entry visas for citizens of all other African nations by the end of the year.
Kenya’s president made the announcement at a conference last week. President William Ruto said the move is part of the process of implementing a continent-wide free trade area across Africa and is designed to promote mobility for Africans of all nationalities.
Kenya joins three other African nations – the Gambia, Benin and Seychelles – in scrapping visa requirements for the citizens of other African nations. The African Union, which represents 55 African nations, has been advocating the removal of all travel barriers between its member nations.
