Entry Requirements : for US Citizens only.
A passport and evidence of yellow fever immunization are required. Visas are not required for American citizens entering Rwanda for less than 90 days. U.S. citizens planning on working in Rwanda should apply for a work permit at the Department of Immigration as soon as possible after arrival in Rwanda.
Travelers who wish to travel to the neighboring Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and whose passports contain visas and/or entry/exit stamps from Burundi, Rwanda, Uganda or Zimbabwe may experience difficulties at the DRC airport or other ports of entry. Some travelers with those visas or entry/exit stamps have been detained for questioning in DRC.
In an effort to prevent international child abduction, many governments have initiated procedures at entry/exit points. These often include requiring documentary evidence of relationship and permission for the child's travel from the parent(s) or legal guardian not present. Having such documentation on hand, even if not required, may facilitate entry/departure.
Restricted Entry :
The Rwandan Government refuses admission and transit to nationals of Burundi without the proper entry documents.
Passport Requirement for Rwanda :
