A rapid antigen test taken 72 hours before departure is now accepted. Travellers still have to take a second antigen test at their own expense (US$5/R80) on arrival at Kigali.

A COVID-19 test is not mandatory for children under five who are accompanied by an adult.

All travellers arriving and transiting in Rwanda must complete the passenger locator form and upload their negative COVID-19 rapid antigen test certificate.
