16 DEC 2021: Rwanda Covid Entry Requirement update

CAS Rwanda received this late-breaking update today. We are awaiting full details and will provide those asap – including cost of tests, if required before each gorilla trek, if daily regardless of length of safari, etc. Please check back there for continued updates or contact Mandy@classicafricasafaris.travel for information on your specific booking.


Dear Tourism Industry Partners,

Following the cabinet resolutions of 14 December 2021 on measures to contain the spread of COVID-19, the Rwanda Development Board (RDB) would like to inform you that all arriving tourists will be required to take an RT- PCR COVID-19 test on arrival & quarantine at a designated hotel while they wait for their COVID-19 negative results.  Tourists visiting national parks will be exempted from the 72 hours quarantine, but will be required to take a mandatory Rapid Antigen or RT-PCR COVID-19 test on daily basis at their own cost. A facilitation request accompanied by guest identification details as well as their travel itineraries is required to be submitted by the tour operator or hotel 72 hours prior to arrival.


The RDB team will remain at your disposal to provide any further clarifications and support.





Ariella Kageruka

Ag. Chief Tourism Officer,

Rwanda Development Board
