Airport Information - Departing

Kigali International Airport is the main international gateway into Rwanda located just 5km outside of the city of Kigali. The airport itself consists of three passenger terminals and offers a limited range of facilities and amenities, so it is recommended to bring any provisions you need with you before traveling to the airport. As well as a café where you can pick up some refreshments, the airport provides Wi-Fi so you can stay connected. The airport is only a short distance away from central Kigali so it’s only a cheap taxi ride away.

What to Expect in Dubai

Remember that the weather in Dubai is very hot over the summer and stays hot for most of the year, although you can visit over the winter between December and March if you would prefer cooler temperatures. Although some nationals are allowed to enter Dubai without requiring a visa, Rwandan nationals will first have to acquire a visa before making the journey. Getting around and exploring the city of Dubai is possible using the Dubai Metro which you can access directly from the airport.
