Getting to Rwanda
Rwanda's international airport Kigali International Airport (KGL) is located at Kanombe, 10km east of the city center. It is well connected to other major transport hubs in Africa, as well as a few other cities around the world (including Amsterdam, Brussels, Dubai, Istanbul, London and Tel Aviv). Airlines servicing Kigali International Airport are RwandAir, Kenya Airways, Ethiopian Airlines, Brussels Airlines, KLM, Qatar Airways and Turkish Airlines. The national carrier since 2002, RwandAir, is one of the safest and fastest-growing airlines on the African continent.
Rwanda shares land borders with Burundi, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Tanzania and Uganda, with plenty of international road travel options including private taxis and buses.
Hiring a vehicle: You're advised to not hand over your passport as a form of security when hiring a vehicle. Keep it in your sight at all times if you’re allowing your passport to be photocopied. Ensure you have adequate insurance and read the vehicle hire contract's small print (particularly any waiver to come into effect if vehicle is damaged).
Within Rwanda, public transport is efficient and reliable, with privately-run buses covering the country. There is no rail network, but a very good road network. Famously hilly, Rwanda is remarkably scenic, making road travel an excellent way to see the country.
All visitors to Rwanda must have a passport that is valid for at least six months from the date of entry. As of 1st January 2018, nationals of all countries receive a visa on arrival at Kigali International Airport and all land borders.
Citizens of countries with membership in the African Union, Commonwealth and La Francophonie receive visas upon arrival and are waived visa fees for a visit of 30 days.
