The Rwanda Development Board recently announced that the East African country is set to welcome back commercial flights once again starting August 1. The decision comes following the reopening of domestic tourism and international charter flights on June 17. Meanwhile, Rwanda continues to prioritise health and well-being of all travellers and has put forward stringent health and safety guidelines.
All passengers, including those in transit through Rwanda, will be required to show proof of a negative COVID-19 test from a certified laboratory, taken within 72 hours of arriving in Rwanda. For passengers entering Rwanda, a second test will be conducted upon arrival, with results delivered within 24 hours during which time travellers will be required to self-quarantine in designated accommodation.
All tourism activities, including primate trekking within Rwanda’s national parks, have currently resumed in line with enhanced COVID-19 prevention measures. The country has also made special tourism packages from local accommodation and tour company partners available for tourism products in Volcanoes and Nyungwe national parks, all of which are valid until December 31.
