Cameroon : Diplomatic And Service Passports Holders Soon Exempted From Visa

Minister Lejeune Mbella Mbella Backs Bill Adoption.

Bill No. 1095/PJ/AN authorizing the President of the Republic to ratify the Cooperation Agreement between the Government of the Republic of Cameroon and the Swiss Federal Council, on the reciprocal abolition of the visa requirement for holders of Diplomatic or Service Passports was under scrutiny on Friday, 11th June 2021 at the Yaounde Conference Centre by members of the Foreign Affairs of the National Assembly.

The Minister of External Relation, Lejeune Mbella Mbella in order to make the law makers see reason why the Bill which will strengthen the friendship and solidarity ties between the two countries by allowing holders of diplomatic or service passports to enter and leave the territory of either state without any visa must be adopted, retrospect on the long time traditional relationship that both countries have enjoyed.

To him, the President of the Republic has submitted the bill based on the country’s diversified cooperation with Switzerland in terms of economy, immigration, cultural and transformation of some products in the state economy. Many Cameroonians have benefitted specialized scholarship from Swiss in the field of medicine, pharmacy and trade.

 Sensitizing the members of the foreign affairs committee on the importance of adopting the bill is expedient. Lejeune Mbella Mbella stated clearly. The abolition of visa applications and payment of related fees for holders of diplomatic or service passports of the two states will also be enjoyed by family members. The agreement will enable the holders of such passports to travel without stress.
