Rwanda: New Visa Fees Come Into Force

The Directorate of Immigration and Emigration announced new visa fees for visitors coming to Rwanda as it seeks to align fees with the global currency rate.

The new visa fees came into force effective July 31 and will remain applicable for the next 12 months, according to a statement issued by the directorate.

Making reference to annual average cross rate as provided by the central bank, the revision has seen a downward change on other currencies, save for the dollars.

The new transit and entry visa is now $30, while travelers with Euros will be paying €27 and those with pounds need to pay £20.

Tourist and family visa costs $50, while those with Euros and Pounds will pay €45 and £35, respectively.

Although travelers with diplomatic passports, as usual, are visa fee exempted, for travelers seeking conference visa the fee has remained 30 for those paying in dollars, while those paying in Euros will pay 27, and 20 for pound holders.
