Traveling to Rwanda – COVID-19 Updates

The most densely populated mainland African country, but one of the most beautiful, the Republic of Rwanda is where the Great Lakes and East Africa meet, and as Rwanda has a vibrant tourism sector due to its wildlife attractions, national parks, including the Volcanoes National Park, the Nyungwe Forest National Park, as well as museums, this is a country rich with heritage and culture. 

Rwanda is open for American tourists, and although cases spiked in early 2021, the current advice by the U.S. State Department is Level 2: Exercise Increased Caution and the CDC’s advisory is Level 2: Moderate Level of COVID-19. 

The country has been doing a good job controlling the outbreak, partly due to being strict with its tracing methods. All arriving passengers must fill out a Passenger Locator Form and are subject to tests. All travelers must pay $60 for a test while spending 24-hours in a designated hotel. Some travelers may need to undergo a seven-night quarantine, but this doesn’t apply to tourists either going to national parks or those in the country on business. 

Travelers departing Rwanda are encouraged to book and pay for departure tests 48 hours in advance. They need to test negative within 72 hours of departure. All tourists must take note that face masks are required in all public spaces, and there is a curfew between 10 p.m. and 4 a.m.
