It used to take between one and a half and two hours," he said, smiling. "That's all changed now. When passengers arrive, it doesn't matter which side they come from, a single checkpoint does all the administration and they are able to carry on across the border."
By cutting the crossing time to a maximum of half an hour, the One-Stop Border Post project has boosted trade and tourism between Kenya and Tanzania Tourist Destination .
