The government has implemented country-wide lockdown and suspension of commercial flights to mitigate the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

Key Points:

  • As of March 20, all commercial passenger flights to and from Rwanda are suspended for 30 days. Cargo flights are not affected.
  • Domestic travel is limited to those seeking medical care or providing essential services.
  • All borders are closed. Rwandan citizens and legal residents may return but must undergo 14 days of quarantine at a designated location.
  • All businesses are to remain closed, and employees must work from home, save those offering essential services and goods. The lockdown went into effect March 21 and will remain in force for two weeks, though it could be extended.
