    Hi
    If I’m right you can get your visa when entering Rwanda, you don’t have to apply in advance.
    I’m entering Rwanda by car from Uganda. Does that mean the same procedure??

    Best regards, Martin

      Hi Martin,
      Visa on arrival applies to all Rwandan entry points including land entry points. So yes. Same procedure at boarder with Uganda.

    Hi
    I will be entering from Tanzania to Rwanda by car as a tourist. I need an East Africa visa, 90 days, since I also will visit Uganda and Kenya. Can I get my East Africa visa at the entry point at Rwanda?
    Best regards,
    Sven
