The African Passport Has Been Finally Launched!

The long-awaited African passport has been finally launched by the African Union (AU) as part of the bloc’s 2063 Agenda. The passport was launched during opening of the 27th AU Summit in Kigali, Rwanda.

The passport is aimed at enhacing the free movement of people in the continent.


The introduction of the African passport is expected to pave the way for the AU’s 2063 Agenda for “a continent with seamless borders” to help facilitate the free movement of African citizens.

The project, which was agreed upon last year, also aims to improve intra-African trade and to ease the movement of domestic goods between member states.

President of Chad and Chairperson of the AU, Idriss Deby Itno, and President of Rwanda Paul Kagame received the first passports from the Chairperson of the AU Commission, Dr. Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma.
