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.
You may alternatively wish to apply for an East Africa Tourist visa. This is a multiple-entry visa, valid for 90 days, which allows the holder to travel between Rwanda, Kenya and for a flat fee of £70. Please contact us if you require further information.
