Reprieve for South Sudanese as Kenya waives visa requirements.

South Sudan citizens can now do business or social activities in Kenya without hindrances, announced the Kenyan government.
In a statement released on Monday, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said South Sudan citizens will not need a valid passport to enter Kenya effective July 26, 2021.
The ministry noted that the move was occasioned by the warm and cordial relations between Kenya and South Sudan.
It said the waiver will enhance cultural ties and strengthen the economy of both Partner States by encouraging free movement of persons and labour, which are key pillars in the integration of the East African Community.
The waiver was in adherence to the provisions of the Treaty for the Establishment of the East African Community.
“Further, in line with Article 10 the EAC Common Market Protocol, the workers of the two Partner States will be allowed to accept employment within the territory of each other,” read part of the statement.
South Sudan, in turn, waived visa requirements for Kenyans wishing to visit the country.
