travel tips

Entry formality

Any foreign visitor wishing to enter the Republic of Burundi should have a valid passport and a visa. To apply for a visa, you should make an application to Embassy of Burundi in your country or at Bujumbura International Airport. Vaccination against yellow fever for visitors who come from tropical countries is mandatory, but it is not necessary for those who come from Europe, United states , etc.. The prophylaxis is recommended against malaria

When to visit

Burundi can be visited at any time, although mountain hikes and other forest walks are more challenging during the rains, which generally peak from mid-September to November and from March to May.

What to wear

Daytime temperatures are generally warm to hot, so bring lots of light clothing. Evenings are cooler, especially at high altitudes, so carry a couple of light sweaters too. Those who intend to hike on the mountains will be exposed to alpine temperatures and should pack accordingly. Solid walking shoes and sturdy clothing are ideal for forest walks. Don’t forget to bring a hat, sunglasses and a waterproof jacket.
