Working hours were increased at Cyanika from 12 to 16 hours (operational) at the end of 2011 and from 12 to 16 hours at Rusumo in April 2012(not yet operational). At the Customs office at MAGERWA, working hours have been extended from 8pm to Midnight starting with May 2012 and will be extended to 24 hours in August 2012.
