No COVID-19 Quarantine For Fully Vaccinated Travellers in Rwanda

You will not need to quarantine when you arrive in Rwanda if you are properly vaccinated against COVID-19.

The new move was approved by Cabinet on Wednesday, making it a worldwide first.

Previously, you had to fill out a Passenger Locator Form before embarking on your trip to Rwanda. You also had to reserve a hotel for the next 24 hours while you awaited the results of your COVID-19 test, which cost $60 and was performed at the airport.

A list of authorized hotels was provided, ranging in price from $30 to $5000. You made the decision based on your financial situation.

You discovered a car despatched by your booked hotel at the Kigali International Airport. The departure controls are so stringent that you will not be permitted to leave unless you can show you have a hotel reservation.

You were driven directly to the hotel, where you are not permitted to leave your room. Any service you want will be delivered to your room.

The average turnaround time for results has been around 6 hours. If your findings are negative, you have the option of leaving or staying for the full 24 hours you paid for the accommodation.

Those who test positive will be transported to an isolation center or taken home by government medics for self-isolation, depending on their health.

Arriving travelers with negative PCR test results will no longer need to stay in a hotel for quarantine, thanks to new amendments agreed Wednesday by a Cabinet meeting led by President Paul Kagame. They will return home or to a hotel (if they are guests) to await their results.

In other words, you do not need to reserve a hotel before visiting Rwanda if you are completely vaccinated. Simply book your trip and arrive in Rwanda with a negative PCR test result. After you’ve exited the airport, you may begin looking for a place to stay. You might be able to discover a more appealing location than what the government requires.

Negative PCR test results will continue to be necessary for anyone exiting Rwanda.

Businesses have also been given permission to operate at full capacity, removing the requirement for restricted access into restaurants and other establishments.

The latest adjustments are another piece of evidence that the authorities are gearing up for the country’s complete openness. According to government figures, nearly 1.7 million individuals have been fully vaccinated, with at least 100,000 people receiving vaccines every day.

Infections have also decreased to less than 100 per day, with the majority of patients being asymptomatic and not requiring hospitalization.

It’s possible that by eliminating quarantine for arriving passengers, data gathered over months from fully vaccinated travelers indicated there were just a few small positive cases.

As a result, it appears that worldwide vaccines and personal preventive measures are helping to reduce infection rates.
