China-Cameroon: visa exemption for diplomatic and service passport holders

Written by Deckson N.

The Cameroonian Minister of External Relations, Lejeune Mbella Mbella, and the Chinese Ambassador in Cameroon, Wei Wenhua, signed on 7th July 2016 in Yaounde, an agreement exempting from visas nationals from both countries holding diplomatic and service passports.

In addition to facilitating the mobility of civil servants from both countries, this agreement should help densifying commercial exchanges between China and Cameroon, economic operators being authorised to request for service passports according to the Cameroon regulation.

For some years now, China has become the main bilateral financial sponsor of Cameroon. From this point of view, a study entitled “China Africa Research Initiative (CARI)”, published mid-June by the American University John Hopkins, reveals that Cameroon received approximately FCfa 1,540 billion out of the Chinese loans intended for Africa, over the 2000-2016 period.
