Burundi: All Travels By Government Officials Must Be Notified

The 1st and 2nd Vice-Presidents of the Republic of Burundi jointly signed on December 28 a decree fixing the scale and the modalities of granting orders and official mission expenses.

According to the decree, any official visit conducted outside the Burundian territory must be authorized by the Government of Burundi within the limits of the available budget and priorities of the government.

The decree states that even private travels by members of the government should be brought to the attention of the office of the Vice-President to whom the travelling government official belongs.
