The new generation EAC e-passport was launched during the 17th ordinary Heads of State Summit in Arusha, Tanzania on March 2.
A regional passport is obviously not a new development in the East African Community (EAC). The novelty this time is about the new features and the usage associated with the e-passport. Prior to the recent developments, EAC launched the East African Passport in November, 1998, with the aim of simplifying travel within the region.
