Single Entry Indian Visa for US Citizen

Hi all,

I'll be traveling to India (landing in Mumbai) Dec 2-13. I'm based in Goma so it looks like Kigali is the closest location for an Indian Embassy/Consulate.

Has a US citizen experienced obtaining an Indian visa at the Consulate in Kigali before? What was required (presumably 2 passport photos, application, fee, itinerary, proof of yellow fever vaccination)? How long did it take?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much!

Which hotels iin Kigali?  (1 Answer)

My husband and I have just finished a learning guide to Hotel Rwanda and sometimes in April for our web site. We've heard Mr. Rusesabagina speak, and were really looking forward to staying at the Mille Collines, but have read awful things. Hotel Intercon. sounds too international/luxe. Can anybody recommend a hotel that is small, charming, clean, where we can really talk to Rwandans? How about Gorillas or Okapi (Sp?)
Thanks much.
