Entebbe Airport, borders to reopen on October 1

Entebbe International Airport opened, Mandatory Quarantine lifted - Guide 2  Uganda

The State minister for Information and Communication Technology, Mr Peter Ogwang, told Daily Monitor yesterday that emphasis will be put on the travellers presenting certificates of negative test results for Covid-19, which must be done 72 hours before arriving in Uganda.

“For those entering through land borders, we already have our health teams across the borders. The issue at hand is that we need to learn how to live with the disease,” he said.

In his latest national address on Covid-19 on Sunday, President Museveni said: “The international airport and land borders will now be opened for tourists, coming in and going out, provided they tested negative 72 hours before arrival in Uganda and provided the tour operators ensure that the tourists do not mix with the Ugandans.”

In his latest national address on COVID-19 on September 20, President Museveni said,”The international airport and land borders will now be opened for tourists, coming in and going out, provided they tested negative 72 hours before arrival in Uganda and provided the tour operators ensure that the tourists do not mix with the Ugandans.”

Museveni added, “How will this be done? The tourists will be driven straight from the airport to their destinations or to designated transit hotels that are set aside for that purpose. Business delegations should also be handled in the same way by the local partners. The returning Ugandans, who have negative PCR results, will be allowed to go home. The Ministry of Health will only get their addresses for follow up.”
