In 2011, the time to cross the border was variable taking between queue time is variable and between a few hours and up to five days. Delays create costs for traders. What: A one stop border post will be constructed at the Busia border.  This project relates to other TMA projects that will provide: •  Improved IT infrastructure at the border; •  Harmonised working procedures on both sides of the border; and • Training for border agency staff, freight forwarders and traders. How: TMA is providing funding for the construction of the OSBP and is supporting the lead agencies to implement the project on time and ensure quality.   The project is implemented in coordination with other ongoing initiatives of the World Bank, JICA, USAID, the African Development Bank and the European Union.

The border is extremely slow, and Nimule takes an average of four days to process imports. This delay imposes serious costs on traders. These time delays can be attributed to inadequate border infrastructure, insufficient quality and quantity of technical equipment, poor border design, complicated procedures based on centralized control, and multiple border organisations working in isolation. What: TradeMark Africa is financing an OSBP at Elegu, Uganda, and modernising and extending the facilities at Nimule, South Sudan. How: TMA will provide full funding for the construction of the OSBP. Harmonisation of customs procedures will be undertaken by a Joint Task Force of Experts from the two countries concerned and supported by TradeMark Africa.  The project will be implemented in coordination with other ongoing initiatives of the World Bank, JICA, USAID, the African Development Bank and the European Union.

With the current traffic volume crossing Taveta /Holili border posts and the anticipated significant increase in traffic volume once the Voi-Taveta part of the road is upgraded, efficient movement of goods and people through the two border posts is very critical to facilitate trade within the EAC region.

This route is considerably longer than the Taveta/Holili route. Operationalising the Taveta/Holili border is expected to increase with the construction of a new Voi-Arusha road passing through the two border points, stretching the capacity of the current infrastructure and operations and increase waiting time for import and export processing. Increased delays create costs for traders.

Prolonged waiting times at the Kagitumba/Mirama Hills border posts which is a major contributor to high transport costs can be attributed to insufficient quality and quantity of technical equipment and complicated procedures focused on centralized control, and multiple border organizations working in isolation. This leads to inconsistencies in the way goods are handled on a day-to-day basis, resulting in poor revenue collection, and poor phyto-sanitary and standards management.
