Visas

It is your responsibility to ensure you have reviewed the procedures for attaining the correct visa from the country of your passport. Information can be found from local High Commissions or Embassies and Visa agencies.

  • Kindly check visa requirements for your passport at your local High Commission/ Embassy. Citizens of most countries can receive on arrival a single tourist entry visa at the airport in Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania at 50 USD
  • Your passport must also be valid for minimum period of 6 months from date of entry and you will need blank pages for the visas to be inserted.

Note: Foreign nationals wishing to obtain a Rwandan visa should submit their applications to the Rwandan diplomatic missions of their country of residence for processing.

 

In the case where Rwanda does not have a diplomatic mission or consulate, foreign nationals should request for a visa acceptance letter online, which will be presented on arrival to obtain a visa upon payment of a fee of $30. https://www.migration.gov.rw/index.php?id=13
