Since 2010 Rwanda has been operating under a harmonized vehicle registration process with other EAC (East African Community) countries. The agreement creates a uniform set of rules that apply even across the region, making it easier to understand the process of relocating a vehicle to Rwanda.

For residents returning to Rwanda, there is a duty reduction that is available as long as the vehicle being imported is not a commercial vehicle.  Others who may qualify for a reduction are those who work with non-governmental organizations (NGOs), government aid workers and foreign diplomats.

There is no age limit on cars that are brought into Rwanda, though it should be noted that they only accept imports of left-hand driving vehicles. As with many countries, Toyotas are a good option if you’re concerned about finding replacement parts of getting your vehicle serviced while you’re in Rwanda. Parts for other types of vehicles can be found, but they may have to be ordered from elsewhere.

The roads in Rwanda can be rough, especially by U.S. standards. There are paved roads, but most are made of dirt and the level of smoothness varies widely, making it preferable to have a vehicle that has four-wheel drive. In between the main towns in the country, most of the roads are paved but do have occasional potholes.
