 Ethiopia to issue visas to African travellers


ADDIS ABABA 8 Oct (ANA) - The African Union's promise of easy travel for Africans throughout the continent is still some way off, but Ethiopia is taking a step towards helping that become a reality.

Speaking at the opening of parliament and outlining the government's legislative programme, President Mulatu Teshome said that African nationals would be able to get visas on arrival in the country rather than applying for them in advance.

Under an AU plan African nations were supposed to scrap visa requirements for all African citizens by 2018.

But to date, the Seychelles is the only nation where visa-free travel is open to all Africans - as well as to citizens of every nation - as it always has been.

A recent AU report found that Africans can travel without a visa to just 22% of other African countries.(ANA)
