The Status of Free Movement of People in Africa

The African Development Bank in collaboration with the African Union Commission and the World Economic Forum has launched the second edition of the Africa Visa Openness Index.

The Index analyses the visa regime in Africa and how open countries are in terms of relaxation or elimination of visa requirements for citizens from other African countries traveling to their countries. The report examines which countries are facilitating travel for citizens of other countries and whether they allow people to travel to their country without a visa, with the provision of visa-on-arrival or whether  visitors need to get a visa before travel.

A pdf vision of the report is attached and can be downloaded from https://au.int/africa-visa-openness-report-2017
