UGANDA AND RWANDA BORDERS TO OPEN 24 HOURS NEXT YEAR


Travelers and Tourist in uganda and Rwanda will have free movement facilitated 24 hours daily starting April next year, according to the agreement made with the two neighboring countries. The development comes following growing traffic of both cargo and passenger vehicles crossing the two borders of Gatuna and Katuna.

“It was proposed during the East African Community Revenue Authority Commissioner Generals meeting that Gatuna-Katuna border will remain open 24-hours by April next year,” Nkusi said.

The Kigali meeting was attended by revenue bosses from Burundi, Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania and Rwanda.

Bus operators and passengers as well as tour operators who have their clients visiting Uganda and Rwanda for the different safari packages they offer in these two tourist destination countries have welcomed the 24-hour service saying it is timely and another important step towards regional integration.
