Rwanda will issue visa-on-arrival for all African nationals

December 10, 2012

Rwanda VisaStarting January 1, 2013, all African nationals will be issued visa on arrival in Rwanda. This spares them of the often cumbersome, tedious, and at times intimidating process of having to apply weeks in advance to secure a visa.

Rwanda’s immigration is one of the most technologically advanced, using biometric data and fingerprinting to allow returning Rwandans back home without having their passport stamped, simply by swiping the read section of the passport through a scanner and confirming the identity with an electronic fingerprint.

Other nationals can get their visa online, equally making the process easy and in large part supporting the growth of visitor arrivals to the “Land of a Thousand Hills.”

RwandAir is also going to be a major beneficiary of this move as it will undoubtedly attract plenty of more passengers spared from obtaining a transit visa in advance as they can now even stopover in Kigali when traveling on RwandAir from one side of the continent to the other.
