The online application for the movement clearance is part of the measures to fight and prevent the spread of Coronavirus pandemic, said the RNP spokesperson, Commissioner of Police (CP) John Bosco Kabera.
"You can now apply for the movement clearance to go for essential services, online. The essential services are
shopping for food, banking services, pharmacy, medical, funeral, and emergencies," CP Kabera said.
How to apply
The applicant can log on to www.mc.gov.rw or dial *127# and follow the prompts.
You will be required to fill in your name, national Identity Card, and telephone number.
You also enter details of your journey; the point of departure and destination, the reason for movement and vehicle number plate; time and date of departure, and return.
"When you complete this online application process, you will receive an sms notification from Police approving or rejecting your application. A successful applicant should be ready to present the movement clearance in case you are stopped by the police along the way," CP Kabera said.
For more information, call 0788311107.
CP Kabera, however, warned against lying to Police so as to find ways to go for "unnecessary movements and non-essential services."
"We will be tracking those cleared to go for their essential errands and serious actions including arrest, fines and impounding of automobiles, will be taken against those who will misuse the movement clearance or those found to have lied about the reasons for their movement," he warned.
