Suam One-Stop Border Post (OSBP)

Kenya and Uganda are set to enhance cross-border trade by establishing a new customs post at the Suam border crossing, creating a third one-stop border facility between the 2 countries.  The Suam border post, funded by the African Finance Development Bank and supported by China State Engineering Construction Corporation, will centralize immigration, customs, security, and sanitary inspections, improving efficiency in transporting and clearing goods. The project also includes the upgrading of Suam-Bukwo-Kapchorwa Road, aimed at modernizing the Suam crossing and boosting the local economy while alleviating congestion at the primary Busia and Malaba border facilities.

Construction of the OSPB project was launched on April 10, 2021 and was integrated with upgrading of the 45-kilometer Kitale-Suam highway. Once completed, the Sh100 million OSBP, is expected to ease the movement of goods between the two countries and boost cross-border business.
