President Uhuru Kenyatta, his fellow Africans Heads of State and their respective foreign affairs ministers will be given the electronic passports in a symbolic gesture during a summit in Kigali, Rwanda. This is part of a longer-term plan to have a continental passport by 2020 granted all 1.1 billion Africans allow them free access to any of the continent's 55 countries.
An African passport will eliminate the need for travel permits or visas, which are often granted after a lengthy and rigorous appraisal. Kenyans for instance require a visa to enter South Africa and Egypt, in a process that takes seven working days. Most cross-border negotiations have centered on boosting integration.
