Note For Passengers Arriving Or Departing From Rwanda

Following confirmation by the Ministry of Health of the Covid-19 Omicron variant in Rwanda, identified through genomic sequencing of samples collected from travelers and their contacts, please note the updated information for arrival and departure from Rwanda, effective 10th January 2022:

  • All travelers arriving in Rwanda must present a negative COVID-19 certificate. The only accepted test is a SARS-CoV 2 Real-Time Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR) performed within 72 hours prior to departure (meaning travelers must be tested and get results within 3 days of their first flight). Other tests, such as Rapid Diagnostics Tests (RDTs), are not accepted. Please note that the COVID-19 test is not mandatory for accompanied children under 5 years.
  • All arriving passengers must quarantine for 24 hours at a designated hotel while waiting for the results at their own cost. A Covid-19 PCR test will be taken upon arrival and an additional mandatory PCR test performed on day 3 at own cost, from the arrival date, at designated testing sites (Camp Kigali or nearest Provincial or District Hospitals for those out of the City of Kigali).
  • At the airport, the payment for the Covid-19 test taken on arrival of 60 USD (50USD for the covid19 test and 10USD for specific logistics to the airport) will be done as per the indications of the passenger locator form. For passengers who opt for a cash payment at arrival, the balance will be given in Local currency (FRW). The passenger who wouldn’t use the payment methods on the passenger locator form may be required to pay again at arrival and claim for a refund for any previous payment made.
  • All arriving travelers must pay the costs of both mandatory RT-PCR tests of arrival and of Day 3 at Kigali International Airport but sample collection for the day 3 test will be conducted at the designated testing sites. Sample collection for day 3 tests will be conducted at the designated hotel. PCR Test of Day 7 will be done from designated testing sites at their own cost.

  • All travelers transiting/connecting who are not leaving the airport and are in transit for less than 12 hours will be screened upon entry and not required to take a second test. This is not applicable for passengers transiting by land border. In this case, passengers will be tested using RT-PCR Test and wait for the results at the designated transit hotels before proceeding.

OnRisk Report 2021

In the 18 months since the COVID-19 pandemic first shuttered the world, organizations have learned to embrace the unexpected. Board members, C-suite executives, and chief audit executives — the key players in risk management — now know that low likelihood/high impact risks must be given greater consideration. This realization has jolted boards into greater awareness of risk management weaknesses, energized senior management to build more nimble and resilient organizations, and positioned internal audit to deliver broader value.
