Regional heads of states have launched the New Generation International East African e-Passport.
The passport was unveiled Wednesday during the ongoing 17 Ordinary East African Community (EAC) Heads of State Summit being held in Arusha, Tanzania. President Uhuru Kenyatta is attended the meeting.
Analysts had earlier said the long awaited New Generation e-East African passport would be a major milestone towards achieving harmonization in the region.
The e-passports are expected to help east African citizens beginning March this year ease their movement in the EAC trading bloc.
