Which COVID-19 test is required by health authorities in Rwanda?

I have a long itinerary that will involve visiting three national parks and other places. Some visits to the parks will fall days after I received my test results. Will I have to test again before visiting a national park?

All international tourists visiting national parks are required to schedule their visit within 72 hours of receiving a negative test result. The only accepted test for tourists visiting Volcanoes, Nyungwe, and Gishwati-Mukura National Parks is the SARS-CoV 2 Real-Time Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR). A negative Rapid Antigen test (RDT) will be accepted for Akagera National Park. If your visit/s falls more than 72 hours after the initial test on arrival, you will be required to take another COVID-19 test before visiting the parks.

If I test positive for COVID-19 in Rwanda, who pays for my treatment and can I be evacuated to my country?

Visitors who test positive for COVID-19 can either be evacuated in line with medical evacuation protocols or seek treatment at a designated treatment center in Rwanda at their own cost.
