Required Documents to Apply
Burundi is an East African country with some strong cultural ties to Central Africa. Like many other countries on the African Continent, it is rich in culture and wildlife. With the ecologically diverse Tanzania as one of its neighbors, Burundi is the home to many rare species. Though there isn't much formal tourism (museums, recreation centers, etc.) and not many touristic landmarks, the nation's nature reserves and national parks remain its main attractions.
As far as its visa policy is concerned, Burundi has a similar application process, although it is one of the most restrictive in the world. Only 6 nationalities (all African) can enter Burundi without a visa These countries are: Democratic Republic of Congo, Kenya, Rwanda, South Sudan, Tanzania, and Uganda. The rest of the world is required to apply for a visa at the nearest embassy or diplomatic mission. In Europe, you can apply for a Burundi visa at the Burundi Embassy in Belgium.

Nonetheless, we at iVisa want to help with whatever information we can give you. Thus, our support service is available 24/7 and is entirely free of charge.
One thing to keep in mind before applying is changes in the nation's visa requirement laws. We recommend that you contact the embassy to find out exactly what is needed of you.
