Intercultural exchange will lead to a more integrated economy, while the free movement of skilled workers leads to higher productivity, better quality ser- vices, as well as addressing the labour gaps that are prev- alent in some professions. The Common Market aims at the free movement of goods, persons, labour, the rights of establishment and residence, the free movement of services and capital. It is the vision of the Community that upon full implemen- tation of the Common Market Protocol, residents will be able to travel, work and settle in all the Partner States without any restrictions or discrimination. Today East African residents, through the provisions of the EAC Common Market Protocol, can travel freely within the Partner States with a national or EAC Pass- port. Residents are allowed a 3-month renewable tourist visa upon arrival free of charge, and can freely work in three of the six Partner States. The liberalisation of people movement is also important to foster the tourism industry. Currently tourists from outside East Africa can get the East African Tourist Visa with multiple entries only in Kenya, Rwanda and Uganda. The tourism industry is integral to the economic devel- opment of the region and contributes significantly to the national economies through employment, foreign exchange revenue, capital and foreign direct invest- ment. The tourism industry as a service sector also em- ploys a large percentage of women and youth as well as low skilled labourers which is vital in transforming the economy. 4.76 million tourists arrived in the EAC region in 2016 (excluding Burundi and South Sudan) The estimated contribution of tourism and travel to GDP in the EAC amounts to 9%
