We supply a lot of flights to and within East Africa, so we welcome any political move which will make travel between Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda and Burundi easier. Hence this week's announcement from the EAC council of ministers that:" We expect to adopt a single tourist Visa during the next financial year [2012-2013]," is great news. At the moment, foreign tourists visiting EAC countries are required to stamp their passports in each EAC country visited. The move to a single visa has been championed by regional airlines and it is clear that the move will benefit tourism to the smaller countries. A parallel move from the EAC would be to market the considerable attractions of the whole region as one with ease of travel being a key determinant of tourist itineraries which could encompass more variety of experience. Currently of the estimated three million tourists visiting the region annually, Kenya attracts the most at over 1 million, followed by Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda and Burundi. In a backwards step beginning July 1, Kenya will now charge 50 dollars for a tourist visa up from the current 25 dollars, however the region will be highlighted this week as Kenya is set to host the 90th Session of the United Nation’s World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) Executive Council meeting bringing together tourism ministers from over 30 countries across the world.
