Rwanda has announced plans to abolish visa fees for citizens of over 90 countries to boost the Eastern African country’s economy.

Citizens of Commonwealth including the African Union and La Francophonie member countries will benefit from the policy when it comes into force.

President of Rwanda, Paul Kagame, emphasised the country’s commitment to trade with the rest of the world.

He said, “We are soon considering exempting citizens of the Commonwealth, as well as the African Union and the Francophonie, from paying visa fees when entering Rwanda.”

This is to ease access to Rwanda for a significant section of the international community.

According to development experts in the aviation industry would among other things increase chances of Rwanda hosting global summits due to ease of access, among other benefits.

The development could also see Rwandans easily access countries from across the in the event of reciprocity by beneficiary countries.
