    The government has outlined new measures to speed up the issuance of work permits and travel documents in a raft of reforms aimed at easing movement and helping Kenyans seize employment and business opportunities in the region when a common market covering five countries is launched in July.

    In what looks like a New Year gift to Kenyans seeking opportunities in the expanded regional market, the immigration ministry says plans are under way to allow Eldoret, Embu and Nakuru offices to issue passports by next year.

    Opening more passport processing offices is expected to ease pressure on the few existing points and reduce the backlog of uncollected documents as services move closer to the people.

    The immigration department, which for many years only issued passports at its Nairobi headquarters, has since devolved the services to Kisumu, Mombasa and Garissa but poor staffing has been blamed for slowing down the process.

    Under the common market , the department not only faces the challenge of processing travel documents to a growing number of Kenyans seeking to travel within the region, but will also have an additional obligation of processing documents to citizens of other member states.

    Ugandans, Tanzanians, Rwandese and Burundians have a right under the common market protocol to renew their travel documents in Kenya.

    The region's transiting citizens as well as students will also apply for travel documents or validation of their migration status in the country of residence instead of having to do so at home.

    Kenya has pledged to liberalise almost the entire services sector immediately the common market protocol comes into effect by next year, opening an avenue for thousands of workers expected to stream into the country in search of better paying opportunities in key sectors of the country's economy.

    Under the region's service sector liberalisation schedule, Kenya is set to open the doors of her job market for university, colleges and school administrators, surveyors and health professionals.

    kenya and rwanda are hard at work preparing for the arrival of the EAC although far from perfect fact is that they are preparing to take advantage of the EAC.

    instead of tanzanians whining about how much they hate kenyans and EAC the most vital question tanzanians should be asking themselves is, what is tanzania doing to prepare for the EAC?

    Wacha wajiandae sisi Tanzania ni swala la kuwashinikiza wabunge waachane na huu upupu wa EAC. Tufanye biashara na kazi za kwetu ni kwa wasomi wetu kwanza. Charity begins at home, sheria zilizopo za kuwatafuta experts ndizo ziangaliwe upya. Bado tunasubiri zile ajira millioni moja za Jakaya Kikwete.

    narrow minded? wait till you buy bread in tanzania that is made in kenya. wait till you go in a tanzanian government office and you find a bunch of kenyans working there. wait till you go into a bank in dar and find a kenyan as a loan manager and you are asking him to give you a loan. wait till your flags in manufactured in kenya. wait till your schools and hospitals are flooded with kenyan teachers nurses

    that is when you will realise this is not a joke. but untill then keeping your head up your ass thinking that kenyans are narrow minded.

    smatta says that you guys are lazy and all you do is talk with no action. its no surprise that tanzania with all its mineral wealth is still a poor country.

    Kenyan may have been people who talk much but they know when to be hard working and how to be aggressive. This is what pushing them leaving people to look at them as greedy. Kenyan have the fighting spirit but most our problems ni tatizo la Uongozi na kujilimbikizia mali ndio haswa linaleta haya yote.

    Mimi ningefurahi sana kuona kama viongozi wetu wange-decentralize system kupitia zones ambapo kila zone inakuwa inawakilishwa na Shirika la Umma, Idara za Serikali, Wizara kulingana na maliasili zinazopatikana toka zones hizo. Ukweli ni kuwa Watanzania tumejiandaa kweli kwa hilo pindi fensi itakavyoachiwa kuruhusu utiririko wa watu wa EA kuingia a kutoka Tanzania kikazi! Kitu naweza sema kuhusu Wakenya ni kuwa ingawaji ni aggressive sana ila pia ni wakora kupindukia.

    Who told you that Kenyans will be allowed to apply for government jobs in Tanzania? For your information government's jobs are not part of the agreement. I don't understand why our (stupid) leaders ,Tanzania side, want to insert our country in a big quagmire by sabotaging our national security. I vehemently oppose this gimmick EAC, Tanzania will be better off if it will continue to be a member of SADC.

    sorry to inform you that whatever you or my opinions are about the EAC at this pont does not matter. what matters is that agreements are being signed and by each passing day the EAC is fast becoming a reality.

    instead of complaining about how much you like or dislike kenyans and the EAC you should be preparing for the EAC because it will bring challenges and opportunities and whoever is best prepared for both of those will be the one that benefits the most from the EAC. question is what is your country doing to prepare for the EAC?

    kenyans soon will start recieving sms from the governement informing them about the EAC. the kenyan governement will have educational and information centers in every district to promote awareness of the EAC and prepare kenyans for the EAC. the kenyan governement is informing teachers unions about teaching and working in the EAC. the kenyan government is alrady hiring more kenyan nurses before they go to other countries or before other nurses from EAC take their jobs.

    i still think that the kenyan govt efforts are too small and insufficient but atleast they are trying and i appreciate the effort. i still demand that the kenyan govt do more to inform kenyans about EAC.

    WHAT ABOUT THE TANZANIA GOVT???

    this is the question that yall should be asking yourselves.

    It is not a done deal as you might think , our parliament has a power to oveturn this nonsense. What Tanzanians should do is to put pressure on the government via oppossition parties ; afterall, we have general election next year.
