After bilateral agreement, South Sudan waives visa requirement for Kenyans
The immigration authorities in South Sudan have been ordered to implement a visa waiver for all Kenyans arriving in the country with immediate effect.
The waiver is in reciprocation to Kenya’s gesture to waive visa’s for South Sudanese citizens visiting the country after a bilateral agreement between the two neighbouring countries.
Kenya’s Foreign Affairs Principal Secretary, Macharia Kamau, had said the waiver for those with a valid South Sudan passport “takes effect immediately” pending the signing of a labour agreement that would offer rules for foreign workers.
South Sudan’s immigration Director-General Atem Marol Biar on his side ordered that the reciprocation be implemented immediately.
