Uganda airlines has issued new guidelines to both incoming and departing passengers at the Entebbe international airport.
The move comes after the presidential directive on the 6th of June 2021 that suspended public transport and other sectors for 42 days effective 7th June 2021.
The letter dated 7th June warns all people intending to use the airport to be keen on the protocols at the airport lest they risk of being chased away.
The letter reads that only passengers both departing and arriving shall have to present a negative PCR Covid 19 certificate done in the last 120 hours.
The statement goes ahead to say that all travellers from category one countries shall continue to be banned from accessing the country. The only people from category one countries accepted to come into the country are returning Ugandans. Category one countries are those that have been highly hit by the pandemic.
According to this statement, travellers from category one and two countries coming to Uganda shall be subjected to a PCR covid 19 test. This test shall be conducted at the traveller’s own expenses.
India is listed in the statement as the only category one country whereas USA, UK, UAE, South Africa, Turkey, Ethiopia, South Sudan and Tanzania were listed as category two countries.
