Rwanda joins Seychelles as the only countries to scrap the requirement for all 55 African countries. TEA GRAPHIC | NATION MEDIA GROUP
Rwanda plans to remove visa requirements for African nationals travelling to the country by 2018, as it seeks to woo more investors and tourists from the continent.
This is in line with an African Union target of abolishing visa requirements for Africans in African countries by 2018.
In 2013, the country relaxed its visa regime by allowing citizens of African countries transiting through Rwanda to be issued with visas upon arrival in the country. But now Rwanda wants to move one step further by abolishing the visa altogether.
