The Rwandan cabinet has waived visa fees for a number of travellers.

This new regulation applies to citizens of the member states of the African Union, the Commonwealth and the Francophonie countries.

The Rwandan cabinet says the bill was adopted to promote the implementation of the country’s openness policy.

The new policy allows all Africans, Commonwealth citizens and the Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie (OIF) to visit Rwanda without paying visa fees.

Rwanda is also organising a meeting of leaders of the Commonwealth of Nations on 26 June, known as CHOGM 2020.

Daily Nation reports Rwanda’s visa-openness has positioned it as one of the most open countries in Africa.
