TRAVEL SAFE AND EASY
In addition to the usual Passport and Visa rules, visitors are currently required to have a valid Covid-19 PCR Test Certificate for International Travel, dated within 96 hours of departure on a flight from a foreign international airport into Kenya or Rwanda, and within 72 hours for Tanzania. Tests should be arranged through designated medical centres issuing valid test certificates meeting international requirements.
Kenya has been successful in containing the Covid-19 virus by implementing stringent measures at an early stage and is screening all visitors entering the country. Temperature monitoring and health checks are carried out at the airports on arrival, and travellers from many countries (including the UK, Canada and much of the USA) do not need to self-quarantine as long as they do not have any symptoms.
Visitors to Rwanda are required to take a Covid-19 Test once they arrive at a designated hotel. The test costs US $60 and results are due within 8 hours. Visitors must isolate at the hotel during this time. Another test is required 72 hours before departing Rwanda and there are test centres in popular tourist locations.
