    Do you have a mail adress?

  4. Peter says:


    Have tried to call the consultate quite a few times this morning with a questions on VISAs but not been able to get hold of anyone. I am a Danish citizen (live in London) and will be travelling to Rwanda in August. I can see from your website that Swedish passport holders are not required to apply for a visa in advance. Kindly advise if this is also applicable for Danish passport holders or if we will need to apply for a visa. If I am required to apply for a visa before travelling can this be done in London or do I need to send my passport to the consultate in Sweden?

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Many thanks

    • Embassy says:

      Dear Peter, as a holder of a Danish passport, you will need a visa for Rwanda. You may apply through our embassy in Stockholm or our High Commission in London (if you have a residence permit in the UK). Please feel free to contact us if you have any other questions.

    I am a Swedish citizen planning on joining my partner to as he will be working within an NGO in Rwanda. I wonder for how long it is possible to get an tourist visa, and if it is possible to extend it when in Rwanda?

    Kind regards

    Is it possible to apply for a 90days Tourist visa without visiting your office in Stockholm? I live in Gothenburg so I wonder if it is possible to apply by mail or online?
