Kenya and Nigeria have agreed a visa deal to encourage more business between the two countries. Nigeria’s presidential media adviser Femi Adesina said that in future there would be free entry for visiting Nigerian and Kenyan businessmen and women, with a visa being granted on arrival without restrictions. Usually, visitors from each country have to pay a visa fee when they arrive. The agreement came after trade talks between Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari and his Kenyan counterpart Uhuru Kenyatta in Kenya. At the meeting, both countries admitted corruption and insecurity were the major threats to their investment progress- but both wanted to push ahead on tourism, oil and mineral, agriculture and textile ventures.
