As a flight dispatcher, it's important to have a good understanding of the requirements for obtaining this permit, including the fact that the issuing of an overflight permit confirms that there is no political or security objection to your airline, aircraft, or country of origin/destination and that there are no outstanding navigation fees due to the ATC authority.

  2. Which aircraft documents must be submitted with the overflight request?
  3. Are there any fees charged by the CAA for processing the permit?
  4. What is the official validity period of the overflight permit, as determined by the CAA?
  5. How can the Rwanda air navigation bill be obtained, either through IATA or a local agent?
To obtain an overflight permit for Rwanda, you will need to contact the Rwanda Civil Aviation Authority (RCAA) or a reputable aviation services provider that can assist you with the permit application process. The RCAA will typically require information about the flight, including the aircraft type, route, purpose of the flight, and other details, It's important to note that the process for obtaining overflight permits can vary depending on the country and the type of flight, and the rules and regulations can change over time. Therefore, it's always advisable to consult with an experienced aviation professional or contact the relevant authorities directly for the most up-to-date information and guidance.

Travel Information :


Rwanda is a landlocked East African country with a green, mountainous landscape. Its renowned Volcanoes National Park is home to mountain gorillas and golden monkeys. The park encompasses 4,507m-tall Mt. Karisimbi and 4 other forested volcanoes. In the southwest is Nyungwe National Park, with ancient montane rainforest that's a habitat for chimpanzees and other primates.

  • Kigali
Since the dark days of the Rwandan genocide, the city of Kigali really has done a U-turn. Where once marauding gangs and death patrols roamed, today there are bustling markets and spice-scented street stalls. The ramshackle barrios now ooze the energy of day-to-day bustle, while the appearance of shimmering steel skyscrapers on the horizon is just another sign of the flow of foreign investment in these parts.
  • Huye
Huye was once known as Butare, and most locals still call it that today. But whatever its moniker may change to, there’s no altering this one’s prestigious history. Huye is the home of the National University and the National Institute of Scientific Research, along with countless other revered learning centers. That makes it something like Rwanda’s answer to English Oxford, or Massachusetts’ Cambridge. It also makes it a place rich with cultural attractions.
  • Volcanos National Park
While most African hinterlands away from the Great Rift Valley are forced to compete with the likes of Kruger and Maasai Mara, Ngorongoro and the Serengeti, when it comes to the wild, mist-topped backcountry of Rwanda’s Volcanos National Park, all bets are off! Yep, this truly breathtaking conservation area – contiguous with Virunga across the border – is topped by the once-smoking calderas of mighty mounts like Karisimbi and serrated Sabyinyo.
  • Kibuye
Kibuye juts its way into the blue-brown waters of Lake Kivu in a series of curved headlands and steep-sided bays. Surely one of the most handsome towns in all of Rwanda, it’s surrounded by high hills that come dressed in wisps of mist by morning and offering sweeping views of the lake waters and the islands by afternoon. Between the streets, there are some earthy little eco lodges on the shores, along with one interesting Catholic church, and a memorial to the Rwandan genocide.
  • Akagera National Park
Akagera National Park is the same savannah and riparian swamp mosaic you’d expect to find in the super-famous game parks of the East African Rift. That’s because its 1,200 square kilometers of land abut right up to the border with Tanzania, giving rise to roaming herds of giraffes, antelopes, jackals and more. Safaris are slowly becoming popular, with outfitters now organizing game drives and game walks from the smattering of lodges that exist.
  • Gisenyi
The gateway to that great speck of blue that is Lake Kivu, sitting amidst the verdant hills and mountains of the Albertine Rift Valley, Gisenyi is a place where the African jungles cascade down grassy hills in sporadic bouts of palm trees and exotic cassiyas. They fall to meet the muddied waters of the lake, where flitting insects and boatman flies cause ripples on the surface. Although shared with larger Goma across the border with DRC to the west, the banks of the lake are the real draw.
  • Nyanza
There was once a time when Rwandan royalty trod the dusty lanes and roadways of far-flung Nyanza; when ancestral monarchs wandered under the great bulbous domes of the adobe and thatched ancient King’s Palace. One of the last capitals of the pre-colonial Kingdom of Rwanda, this spot in the southern reaches of the country is steeped in history and tradition.
  • Nyungwe Forest National Park
There are few protected forests that can boast the same kind of superlatives as Rwanda’s mystical Nyungwe Forest National Park. For starters, this vast area of more than 940 square kilometers is the single largest enclave of montane forest remaining in this corner of the continent.
  • Lake Kivu
While Lake Kivu is hardly a single destination, it’s worth a special mention on its own simply because of the sheer wealth of attractions and activities it offers travelers to Rwanda from its place on the extreme western border of the country. Covering a vast area of more than 2,700 square kilometers, it ranges from Gisenyi in the north to the multicultural island of Ishwa in the south.
  • Gisuma
Gisuma is Rwanda’s coffee king. Set amidst the foothills and sylvan valleys that rise to the Nyungwe Forest, the town is just a small speck on the map. But, thanks to its tasty beans and potent caffeine-infused brews, it’s risen to become well-known by baristas and coffee enthusiasts the world over. Today, the industry is headed by the ethical Gisuma co-operative organization, which has increased the take-home pay of local growers in the region by as much as 45% since it began.
