Rwanda reopened tourism activities and reestablished international travel via charter flights on June 17.

All visitors arriving in Rwanda via charter flights must test negative for Covid-19 within 72 hours of arrival. They will have to take a second Covid-19 test prior to visiting any tourist attraction, and masks are required for both guests and staff at all times in all public spaces.

Information on the resumption of commercial flights is forthcoming.

Commenting on the reopening, Belise Kariza, the chief tourism officer at the Rwanda Development Board, said: "Rwanda's tourism industry is adapting to create a safe environment for travelers and operators, in order to thrive in these unprecedented times. We encourage all travel enthusiasts and nature explorers to take advantage of this unique opportunity to venture out and experience the beauty and adventure that our country has to offer."
