3. Import, Transit and Stockpile Management
Importing, storing both in the state's arms store and the general stores, withdrawing from those locations, selling firearms and their parts separately, their ammunition or spare parts, are subject to a prior authorization of the Minister of Defense (art. 2 of the Decree Law nº 12/79 of 7 May 1979)… but this prerogative has been extended to minister of internal security for civilian firearms in the new legislation.
Likewise, the transportation of arms and ammunition on the territory of the Republic of Rwanda is subject to producing a declaration form from the country in which these arms are to be used, certifying that they are to be used by the state or other individuals indicated on the declaration form (art. 7).
