LAW RELATING TO CIVIL AVIATION AUTHORITY

  • Article 14 of Law No. 42/2011 of 31/10/2011 Relating to Civil Aviation Authority requires a special certificate issued by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) to Hotels and Catering service suppliers.

  • This law directly affects positively the Tourism business by imposing precautions to be undertaken;

  • It is also a hindrance to doing business since CAA is joining in as a regulator alongside other institution’s like RDB, RURA, MINISANTE and others.

  • Article 18 up to article 32 impact positively on tourism by offering a security protection for the passengers

LAW GOVERNING ROADS IN RWANDA

  • Article 3 of law no 55/2011 of 14/12/2011 governing roads in Rwanda classify the public roads into 3 classes but the 3rd class refer to all roads that link areas of tourist significance.

  • Until now these roads indicated in the aforesaid article are insufficient and some tourist attractions are in remote areas and accessing them would be a constraint.

RECOMMENDATIONS

  • As with all other industries, tourism requires basic infrastructure to function.

  • Tourism developments require a set of utilities in order to function properly.

  • Despite the foregoing developments, and protection of tourism industry in Rwanda has not realized its full potential due to various problems.

  • That is why we recommend that:

  • Tourists travelling around Rwanda should expect a level of quality of roads as well as of transport provision to take them speedily but also comfortably to their destinations.

  • There needs to be harmonized regulatory platform or supervision and licensing authority setting out a number of requirements to be fulfilled by investors in the sector prior to being licensed as this shall avoid or at least mitigate negative surprises in the business;
