| There are two entries into Kigali Airport - a newer entrance with an automated security screening and an older entrance with screenings done by K9s. Both are slow so expect 30-60 min wait time. You are not allowed into the building terminal unless you can show proof of an itinerary. None of the staff are friendly or helpful, they expect you to know where you are going and are brusque, even rude, in conversation. The other traveler who spoke about the unprofessionalism of the terminal security staff is one I experienced as well. There were 6 security agents, yet one male made the sole female do all of the checking for both of my bags, not even deigning to speak to her, just pointing at things he wanted searched—and even though he knew my flight was at final call. (After the initial boarding announcement, I went to the bathroom and 5 min later it was final call, another issue I have with the airport). He refused to let me inform the ground staff that I was there, when they were just through the checkpoint only 10 meters, not even allowing me to call out to them and making me almost miss my flight with the 20 min search. He pulled out my Emergen-C and Advil packets and accused me of being sick (when I told him I am preventing myself from getting sick!) and told me that my small packets of energy gels and anti malaria pills were not allowed. I was so frustrated with their lack of professionalism and empathy, Kigali Airport needs to train their staff to be gender equal and educated on what exactly what is banned and what is not. I was able to take all my belongings at the end, as a superior staff came and told the man that I was able to take everything he told me I couldn’t. If I could avoid this airport, I would, if not—give yourself an extra 30 min for the in terminal security.
