Visa News for Kenya, Rwanda and Uganda

By Lesli Heron

Tourists visiting Kenya, Rwanda and Uganda will no longer have to pay for separate visas for all three countries, as the East African single tourist visa came into effect on January 1, 2014. The East African single tourist visa will allow a tourist to enter any of the three countries that issued the visa and move freely within the other two.

The multiple-entry visa, which will be valid for 90 days, will cost $100. Tourists can apply at any diplomatic office of Kenya, Rwanda and Uganda, at immigration offices of the respective countries or online.
