Embassies, Consulates & High Commissions in Kigali

Loading Map…

As Rwanda’s capital city, Kigali is the place for all of your international embassy needs. Kigali doesn’t have as many embassies and High Commissions as Uganda and Nairobi and you could find yourself needing to travel to get visas for more obscure countries… but they do have a decent number of them. And here, my friends, is a list with contact details and opening hours.

These sorts of things tend to change a lot so if you see a mistake, call me a fool and then let us know the correct information in the comments. Thanks!

About Kirsty

A Canadian who left in 2001 to wander around the world in search of sun, beautiful views and goat brochettes. Found Kigali in July 2010 and it seems like the perfect fit. I expect to be here until I get kicked out for defiantly walking on the grass while wearing flip flops.
