Following the June 17 reopening of domestic tourism and international charter flights, the Rwanda Development Board announced that commercial flights will resume on Aug. 1.
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; travelers will be required to self-quarantine in a designated hotel at their own cost during that period.
All tourism activities, including primate trekking within Rwanda's national parks, have now resumed in line with enhanced Covid-19 prevention measures. Tourism packages are available on the Visit Rwanda website for groups, families and corporate travelers for tourism products in Volcanoes and Nyungwe national parks.
