Travel Agreement Signed between St Kitts and Nevis and Sierra Leone

The agreement affords citizens of both nations the right to visit each other’s country for a period not to exceed 90 days. The agreement comes amidst several efforts by the administration to reinforce St Kitts and Nevis’ international rapports, and evidences the Government’s commitment to enhancing the rights and privileges of the citizens of the Caribbean Federation.
H. E. Turay focused on the benefits of improving people-to-people contacts, fuelled by tourism and business. H.E. Dr Isaac noted the historical ties that connect St Kitts and Nevis to Africa, and that the agreement would serve as a “bridge across the Atlantic.” Dr Isaac’s words echoed the vision of Minister of Foreign Affairs Mark Brantley, who is looking to advance diplomatic bonds between the Federation and the nations of the African continent.
A Government press release indicated that both High Commissioners had offered invitations for Ministers to pursue cooperative efforts between their two nations.
