  • Airport Information: Due to Kigali being the nearest proximity to site, we encourage volunteers to fly into Kigali International Airport.  For most nationalities  (American, Canadian and British as examples), visas into Rwanda are at no charge. However, all  nationalities don’t need to have prior approval to enter/exit through Rwanda as they can get visas at the point of entry upon arrival. See this website https://www.migration.gov.rw  for more information or contact us to assist you.  The drive to site from Kigali is approximately 4-5 hours whereas the drive from Kampala (Entebbe ____ Airport) can be 8-10 hours.
  • Visas: If you are volunteering with AFRICODE,
  • Program Costs: We want volunteers to be able to afford to come so we don’t miss out on any opportunities.  This is why we make it clear where your funds are going.
