Burundi is considered to have risk of malaria for visitors in general, but there is now an outbreak going on. From the US CDC:

A malaria epidemic has been declared by the Burundi Ministry of Health. All of the country’s 18 provinces are reporting higher numbers of malaria cases than expected and nine provinces—Gitega, Kirundo, Muyinga, Karusi, Kayanza, Ngosi, Ruyigi, Cankuzo and Cibitoko—have been especially hard-hit.

Health officials in Burundi, aided by international health and relief…

Is it possible to get a single-entry Burundi visa in Dar-es-Salaam for 7 days?

Did somebody have any recent experience?

How much time does it take?

Thanks.

Before setting off to Burundi I read all the Burundi reports posted on TT in last four, five years. They were useful but many things have changed even since the latest reports. Moreover some information was missing. So here's my update.

Visa:
In Kampala visa takes 15 days but I ”bargained” and got my visa in three working days. Five day transit visa costed 40 USD and was stamped for exact dates. I was able to change the dates when picking up the visa.

On the Rwandan border I was told that when…

Any suggestion, recent experience, info, etc. on how to get a visa (even if for 3 days only) to Burundi at the land border crossing (from Rwanda) or at the airport or at the embassy in Kigali while-you-wait. I am aware that this may be impossible, but I keep the hopes high.

Alternatively at the embassy in London while-you-wait, or getting an "Entry Authorisation" letter somehow that entitles a visa issuance upon arrival? German and Australian passports.

Hello,
does anyone have recent experience with the Burundi visa in Ruanda? Is it possible to get it at all, even if it takes two weeks? What papers are needed?

I visited the Burundi Embassy in Kigali today in an attempt to pickup either a transit or tourist visa. While previous Thorntree posters have described the process, at least for transit visas, as quick and easy. It appears that that has changed. The woman at the front desk said that they changed the policy earlier this year and now even the transit visa takes two weeks to process. It is no longer possible to make arrangements on the same day or even within a couple of days.
