The United Kingdom (UK) has abolished its tourist visa requirement for Guyanese.
This announcement was made on Tuesday by British High Commissioner to Guyana, Jane Miller.
The diplomat was at the time speaking at the UK-Guyana investment opportunities press conference at her residence.
President Dr Irfaan Ali and other government officials were in attendance.
According to Miller, from November 9, nationals of Guyana will not be required to apply for a visitor visa to travel to the UK (for travel up to six months).
Visa requirements for work, study and settlement routes in the UK remain in place, Miller noted.
The visa waiver, Miller pointed out, will boost many opportunities between Guyana and the United Kingdom.
Miller highlighted that the removal of the visa requirement is a “real sign” of the flourishing UK/ Guyana relationship.
President Ali disclosed that this agreement was reached following discussions between former UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson and King Charles III.
