Rwanda Lifts African Countries’ Visa Restrictions

Following President William Ruto’s suggestion that Kenya would remove similar restrictions for all African countries by the end of the year, President Paul Kagame of Rwanda has eliminated visa requirements for all African nations.

President Kagame claims that the action was taken to support the travel and tourism sector.

Kagame’s action follows President William Ruto’s suggestion, made a few days ago, that Kenya would eliminate visa requirements for all African nations by year’s end.

At the Three Basins Summit on Biodiversity Ecosystems and Tropical Forests in Congo Brazzaville, Ruto stated that African nations were being negatively impacted by visa policies.
