The country has put in place robust health and safety guidelines to ensure this. All passengers, including those in transit through Rwanda, will therefore be required to show proof of a negative COVID-19 test from a certified laboratory, taken within 72 hours of arriving in Rwanda.

 

For passengers entering Rwanda, a second test will be conducted upon arrival, with results delivered within 24 hours during which time travellers will be required to self-quarantine in designated accommodation.

 

All tourism activities, including primate trekking within Rwanda’s national parks, have now resumed in line with enhanced COVID-19 prevention measures. Special tourism packages from local accommodation and tour company partners are now available for tourism products in Volcanoes and Nyungwe national parks.
