Since 2018, UK nationals may enter Rwanda for transit, conferences, and tourism with an electronic visa issued by the Rwandan government. The country's economy will increase significantly as a result of the rising number of visitors from UK. Rwanda has become the ideal destination for travelers to spend their vacations there.
How long it takes UK citizens to obtain a visa for Rwanda depends on the processing time they select. E-visa processing typically takes 1 to 3 business days. This is thought to be a lot quicker than waiting for a visa interview at an embassy or consulate. Thus, UK nationals must submit their applications at least 4 working days before they plan to travel to Rwanda.
Rwanda Immigration Services recommends that there are 3 options for UK nationals to choose in order to process their e-visa:
- Normal: For UK nationals who need an e-visa within three business days. Travelers will have time to prepare some additional documents needed for an e-visa during this time.
- Urgent: For UK nationals who need an e-visa within two business days.
- Super Urgent: For UK nationals who need an e-visa within one business day, this is the ideal alternative.
