The Rwanda Development Board (RDB) said commercial flights started today, months after they had been suspended to limit the spread of the coronavirus.

A number of measures have been announced to facilitate personal hygiene and the environment people will be travelling in.

For instance, 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 travelers will be required to self-quarantine in designated accommodation.

All tourism activities, including primate trekking within Rwanda’s national parks, have now resumed in line with enhanced COVID-19 prevention measures.

Special tourism packages from local accommodation and tour company partners are now available for tourism products in Volcanoes and Nyungwe national parks.
