AllAfricansmay soon be able to obtain the African passport that will allow travel across the continent without the need for a visa. A boon for migrants who will be able to travel freely.
Good news for Pan-Africanism. The African Union (AU) discusses the possibility of issuing the African passport to all Africans and not only to affiliated heads of state.
“One day insh’allah you will have the right to this passport but it is necessary to wait a little” , underlines the Council of peace and security (COPS) of the AU in its message of greetings of the end of the year to the Africans.
As a reminder, the first African passports were issued simultaneously to Idriss Deby , President of Chad, and Paul Kagame of Rwanda on the sidelines of the July 2016 African Union Summit in Kigali. It is currently reserved for a few union members of the AU.
The African passport will be the most powerful in the world. It will allow its carrier to travel all over the planet and beyond without the need for a visa. It will facilitate the mobility of African citizens and will solve the problem of migrants who can now travel freely.
