Travel Information

The Embassy would like to inform travelers to Burundi that the country still has a lot to offer in terms of touristic attractions. 

The travel warnings sometimes found on the Foreign Affairs Ministries web sites  of some of the Burundi partners are not accurate and aim at discouraging travelers and tourists. There are no security issues specific to Burundi and no foreigner is targeted for being a foreigner.  Security of all citizens living in Burundi or visiting the country remains a top priority of the Institutions. Burundi is connected to the world via many  airlines from all the corners of the world. So do not miss the opportunity to enjoy the 365 Burundi destinations.
