African nationals are not required to apply for a visa to enter Rwanda, but get it on arrival.

Last week, the former president of the African Development Bank, Donald Kaberuka, was barred from boarding a British Airways flight to Accra for not having a valid visa.

“Let’s facilitate Africans traveling to their continent. BA airline just refused to board me to Accra: visa!” Kaberuka tweeted.

The Hauser Fellow at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government was on his way to participate at an event organised by the Mo Ibrahim Foundation.
