How to apply
Whether applying through www.mc.gov.rw or the Unstructured Supplementary Service Data (USSD) *127#; the applicant will be required to fill in their full particulars, telephone number, automobile plate numbers and the timeframe when the automobile will be on the move, and the flight number.
“For those arriving, their applications will be processed by hotels where they will be accommodated but in circumstances where an individual has to go out of the facility where he or she is accommodated, either going to their homes or for other emergencies past the curfew hours; the pass will be applied individually,” CP Kabera said.
He reminded that the applicants will as well be required to produce their flight tickets.
“Besides seeking the movement clearance, the applicants are also reminded to observe all other safety and hygiene directives including the compulsory wearing of facemask, washing or sanitizing hands and social distancing,” CP Kabera said.
Police officers, he said, will be on the road to facilitate them.
