All travelers arriving in Rwanda must present a negative COVID-19 certificate. The only accepted test is a SARS-CoV 2 Real-Time Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR) performed within 72 hours of departure (meaning travelers must be tested and get results within 3 days of their first flight). Other tests, such as Rapid Diagnostics Test (RDTs), are not accepted. A second PCR test will be conducted upon arrival, with results delivered after 24 hours. Fully vaccinated travelers and children below 18 years will no longer be required to quarantine at designated hotels upon arrival but will be required to self-isolate and wait for the results at home or at the booked hotels. Arriving travelers must present a valid vaccination certificate showing their full vaccination status to be eligible for this exception. COVID-19 Test is not mandatory for accompanied children under 5 years.
The Government of Rwanda currently enforces a curfew from 12:00 AM to 4:00 AM. Travelers visiting national parks must test negative for COVID-19 at their own expense.
