Domestic travel banned in Rwanda as COVID-19 cases rise

Rwanda has banned all domestic travelling as COVID-19 cases in the country continue to rise.  Public and private transport between districts and the Rwandan capital, Kigali has been banned by the Rwandan government. 

According to a statement from the Prime Minister’s office, domestic and international tourists can still travel across the country but must carry proof of negative Covid-19 test results.  

“Travel will only be permitted for medical reasons and essential services… Vehicles transporting goods will continue to function with no more than two people on board,” reads part of the statement.
