Visa Rwanda: More information

Most foreigners planning on entering the country must apply for a Rwanda visa. The only citizens who are exempt from this requirement are citizens of Ethiopia, Gabon, Guinea, India, Israel, Morocco, Turkey and Djibouti. All other nationalities must apply for a visa.

The Rwanda eVisa is an online visa that allows you to visit the country for 30 days. You can also apply online for the East African visa, which allows you to visit, in addition to Rwanda, Kenya and Uganda with a validity of 90 days. The other visa you can apply for online is a transit visa when Rwanda is a stopover to your final destination. This visa is valid for 3 days.

Make sure your details are correct when you apply for any visa. If you have lied or omitted relevant information, which could cause harm to the country, the authorities may refuse entry, even if you have an approved visa. The government of Rwanda reserves the right of admission and has the final say.
