Rwanda is considering waiving visa fees for a broad category of visitors entering the country, president Paul Kagame is reported to have said in London.

Rwanda to Scrap Visa Fees for Africans, Commonwealth, and La Francophonie Citizens

The waiver if eventually passed will mean that all Africans, citizens of Commonwealth nations and member states of the Francophonie will be admitted into Rwanda without having to pay visa fees.

President Paul Kagame made the announcement yesterday at the International School for Government at King’s College in London, while speaking about Rwanda’s transformation journey.

The conversation was moderated by Alexander Downer, the Executive Chair of the institution. The President emphasised Rwanda’s commitment to trade with the rest of the world.


“… We are soon considering exempting citizens of the Commonwealth, as well as the African Union and the Francophonie, from paying visa fees when entering Rwanda,” he said.


The move is expected to ease access to Rwanda for a significant section of the international community.

This, development experts say, will among other things increase chances of Rwanda hosting global summits due to ease of access, among other benefits.

The development could also see Rwandans easily access countries from across the in the event of reciprocity by beneficiary countries.
