VISA ON ARRIVAL
Applicants from Australia, Germany, Israel, New Zealand, South Africa, Sweden and the USA may be able to obtain a single-entry visa on arrival in Rwanda, valid for up to 30 days. However, a fee will still be charged and there is no guarantee of entry. We therefore strongly advise applicants to obtain a visa before travelling.
