Cameroon – Cooperation: Cameroonian businessmen holding service passports exempted from visas by Italy

Written by Deckson N.

The Cameroonian Parliament, during its last session, authorised the Head of State, Paul Biya, to ratify the agreement signed between Italy and Cameroon, to exempt from visas nationals of both countries holding diplomatic or service passport. This agreement was signed on 17 March 2016 in Yaounde, during the visit of the Italian President, Sergio Matarella.

Interviewed on the implication of such an agreement on strengthening the economic cooperation between Cameroon and Italy, the Cameroonian Minister of External Relations, Lejeune Mbella Mbella, explains that this visa exemption only applies to economic operators.

Insofar as, he specified, the regulatory texts currently in force in Cameroon allow economic operators to obtain service passports under certain conditions, which were however not detailed.
