Gabon and Equatorial Guinea, joint hosts of the 2012 African Cup of Nations, will be issuing a common entry visa to both countries during the competition, the local organising committee said on Tuesday.
At a press conference in Cameroon’s economic capital Douala on Tuesday, the AFCON 2012 joint local organising committee said both countries would put in place the possibility of obtaining a special visa valid for entry into the two territories, as opposed to the regular separate visas.
“We are open to all African nationals. Therefore with Gabon, we will introduce a common visa to allow people not to follow two procedures for obtaining visas. With a visa, you can enter in either country before and during competition,” said secretary of the committee Ruslan Obiang Nsue.
