All visitors to Burundi, unless they come from one of the visa-exempt countries mentioned below, must obtain a visa from one of the Burundian diplomatic missions before entering the country. Until 30 April 2015 citizens of all countries entering Burundi through Bujumbura International Airport were able to apply for a visa upon arrival. However, they were then required to obtain a visa in advance.[1][2] In October 2015 it was announced that the visa on arrival for 3 months at Bujumbura airport would again be available to foreign visitors. An Entry Authorisation letter issued by the authorities of Burundi is now required to obtain a visa on arrival.
