As per a recent Rwandan Cabinet resolution, nationals of all countries in the world will get a 30-day visa upon arrival on entering its territory from 1 January 2018.
This new visa regime is expected to improve openness and accessibility of Rwanda to the whole world.
Earlier, only passport holders from Africa and a few other nations could receive it in this East African country online or without sies.
With this new visa regime, Rwandans living overseas with dual nationality will be allowed to use their IDs on entry, exempting them from visa fees.
In addition, foreigners in Rwanda can use their resident ID cards for entry.
The New Times quotes a brief by the directorate general of Immigration and Emigration as saying that Rwanda will immediately start granting a free 90-day visa on a reciprocal basis to many Africa nations in addition to the Philippines and Singapore.
Moreover, diplomatic and service passport holders of Rwanda will not need visas when travelling to select countries such as India, Israel, Ethiopia, Djibouti, Gabon, Guinea, Turkey and Morocco as it entered into visa waiver agreements with them.
