Traveling to Uganda – COVID-19 Updates

Uganda is a country that boasts beautiful wildlife and is a big attraction for tourists who want to go on safari. There are many national parks and game reserves in Uganda and has a number of cultural sites of significance and stunning landscapes, including the Rwenzori mountains and the Great Rift Valley. 

The current rules on traveling to Uganda in the wake of COVID by the US Embassy reports that the Government of Uganda recommends all travelers from the US not vaccinated should postpone any non-essential travel. Any arriving passengers need a negative PCR COVID-19 test taken up to 120 hours before departure for Uganda. 

Any traveler from the United States is subjected to a PCR COVID-19 test, which is at their expense at every point of entry into the country, and travelers need to wait for a negative result before continuing their traveling. 

Any individual fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and doesn’t display any symptoms is allowed into the country without taking a test. Uganda has some lockdown restrictions- there is a nightly curfew of 9 p.m., and masks are essential in public. For any departing passengers, they must present a negative COVID-19 test 120 hours before leaving.

The U.S. State Department’s advisory for Uganda is Level 3: Reconsider Travel due to COVID-19. However, the CDC advice is Level 1: Low Level of COVID-19.
