Getting In and Around
American citizens are not required to have visas to enter Rwanda if they are staying for under 90 days. For country-specific visa requirements, we recommend using the Visa HQ website.
International flights fly into Kigali International Airport. Travel around Rwanda is actually much easier than in other East African countries, and the country has some of the best roads in East Africa as well. Local and luxury bus services are accessible, although some people still opt for private-hire cars and taxis. Public transportation is definitely an option.
Rwanda has a very strong communications network, and making calls internationally is quite easy. You can either take a GSM phone or purchase a SIM card or a cell phone at most places in Kigali.
Safety and Security
Rwanda is a relatively safe country; contrary to popular belief, its crime level is low and the police are notably polite and well-trained in case of any problems. As always, be cautious at night and be mindful of your surroundings. For further details, check out the United Kingdom’s Foreign and Commonwealth Office
Proof of yellow fever vaccination is necessary in order for visitors to enter the country. Rwanda, compared with other African countries, also has a lower number of cases of malaria, owing to its geographical position.
