Africa: Passport Law for Review in Response to AU Move – Govt

Dar es Salaam — Following the launch of the African Union (AU) diplomatic passport during the just ended Kigali Summit, the government will review the travel documents Act in a bid to make clear on their usage.

The passport was firstly issued to the region’s heads of state and ministers of foreign affairs. They will also be available to civilians of AU member countries with regards to the available procedures.

This document was introduced as part of efforts to enhance and promote business and political integration among members. Moreover, the passport would facilitate interaction by cutting some unnecessary restrictions during visa application.
