President Uhuru Kenyatta on Wednesday 5th May 2021 announced that Tanzanian investors who are planning to set up businesses in Kenya are allowed to do without a work permit or Visas.


The head of state also said that the Kenyan government will also remove the non-tariff barriers between Kenya and Tanzania.

“Tanzanians are free to engage in business transactions without VISAs or work permits provided all laws of the land are adhered to,” President Uhuru said.

He was speaking earlier today at the Serena Hotel where Kenya and Tanzania Investment Forum was being held.

He further directed the two ministers in charge of Industrialization for both countries to make sure that there shall be no traffic at the Taveta and Namanga border points.

“I want to announce two directives and I want them done this week and next week. All concerned ministers please move with speed and unlock the jam in Holili, Taveta and Namanga border points. On Covid-19 certificates, please let the health ministers sit and agree on modalities. If the certificate is issued in Tanzania let those people be allowed to come to Kenya and vice versa,”

“The East African Community has opened our borders and have unlocked opportunities for the free movement of goods, services and products. Trade within our countries has thrived but we must accept it is yet to reach the level we expect.” The Head Of State said.

He also ordered that the release of maize that was held at the Namanga border be released within the next two weeks.

According to the reports, Kenya has over 500 companies in Tanzania unlike Tanzania which only has about 30 companies in Kenya.

President Suluhu encouraged investors from Tanzanians to adopt Kenya’s technology to help them operate easily.

“There is an opportunity for Tanzania to leverage on Kenya’s technology. I urge Kenyan and Tanzanian investors to establish partnerships. Real development is realised when we develop together. The private sector is key in driving economic growth,” Samia said.

“Tanzania is highly committed to seeing a vibrant private sector capable of facing the challenges of the global economy through our industrialization drive.” She concluded.
