The East African Community or EAC urges South Sudan government to speed up efforts to reduce or eliminate visa fees for its citizens’ free movement in the region.
Free travel would boost trade and investment Ambassador Liberat Mfumukeko Secretary-General of EAC says while concluding two-day visit to South Sudan, Radio Bakhita reports.
He says the move will also allow South Sudan benefit from the Electronic Passport that to be introduced this year.
Secretary General of South Sudan EAC Secretariat, Mou Mou Athian, says the visit yielded positive outcome and that all pledges would materialize.
South Sudan joined the East African Community last year.
It became the sixth member of the bloc, but it is yet to implement some instruments including free travel.
