Currently, tourists travelling across the region must obtain separate visas for each nation.

Kenya, Rwanda and Uganda are partnering in order to simplify travel arrangements for holidaymakers as well as creating a new brand for the region.

The single tourist visa is expected to boost regional travel and value addition to the tourism product offered by the three countries.

According to the deal, a single entry visa will cost $100. The current cost of a single entry visa for Kenya and Uganda is $50, while Rwanda charges $30.
