Rwanda Visa FAQs

When is the best time to apply for my Rwanda visa?
The best time to apply for your Rwanda visa is 1-2 months before your travel date. However, if you are running short on time, we may be able to process your visa on a faster service at the Embassy’s discretion.

Do I have to send you my passport to get a Rwanda visa? Is it safe to send a passport?
Yes. You will need to send your actual passport, not a copy of it. The Rwanda visa is stamped on your passport and will become one of your passport pages. Visa request cannot be processed without your original passport. Because of the importance of your passport, we strongly suggest that you send your application by a secure method, such as a guaranteed postal service or courier.

    It may be possible to obtain your visa upon arrival under limited circumstances. Visa requirements and travel restrictions vary greatly when obtaining an on arrival visa. In addition, local immigration officials also hold the right to refuse entry to anyone for any reason.

    Due to concerns around coronavirus and COVID-19 many nationalities are forbidden from obtaining a visa on arrival. Anyone who has travelled to regions affected by COVID-19 are unlikely to be allowed to enter. We strongly recommend that you obtain your visa prior to departure. Should you choose to obtain your visa upon arrival, you will need to inquire with your airline if boarding is allowed without a visa
