Rwanda, Kenya move to boost tourism cooperation

Pas d'image

Rwanda and Kenya, two member countries of the East African Community have agreed to boost tourism cooperation that will see the development of business and leisure travel across the borders, an official source revealed Wednesday in Kigali.The agreement  signed between the Kenya Association of Travel Agents (KATA), Rwanda  Development Board (RDB), Rwanda Chamber of Tourism (RCT) and the East  African Tourism Platform (EATP) is expected to enhance cooperation  between the above parties and improve the region’s competitiveness as a  tourism destination.

As part of the agreement, the partners will  collaborate on addressing challenges faced in the region’s travel  industry and explore a range of solutions and initiatives that can help  transform businesses in the sector,  market the region’s tourism  offerings to new audiences and promote regional travel.

The two  countries ALSO agreed to provide opportunities for exchanging knowledge,  expertise, and best practices on travel and to promote the exchange of  familiarisation visits between Kenya and Rwanda.

They will work  hard to encourage tourism flows between Kenya and Rwanda, something that  may explain that a tourism promoter would need to sell both Rwandan and  Kenyan tourism packages and vice versa.

Currently the East  Africa Tourist Visa is a single or multiple entry visa for foreigners  visiting Kenya, Rwanda and Uganda simultaneously.

The visa is valid for 90 days from the date of issue.

All international passengers entering Kenya and Rwanda required to have a negative COVID-19 test result prior to their arrival.
