Ethiopia is taking a step to abolish Visa entry for all Africans, President Mulatu Teshome has said.
He said this during the opening of parliament and outlining the government’s legislative programme in the capital.
Under an African Union plan (AU), African nations were supposed to scrap visa requirements for all African citizens by 2018. But to date, the Seychelles is the only nation where visa-free travel is open to all Africans as well as to citizens of every nation -as it always has been.
According to a recent AU report, it found that Africans can travel without a visa to just 22% of other African countries.
