Uganda & COVID-19 - Travel Advice & Things To Know

Uganda COVID-19 Updates

Good news! 

Uganda has abandoned all covid measures. There are no specific requirements as to which type of vaccinations and the number of boosters being required. Being '' vaccinated '' is good enough, and you need to be able to demonstrate it, such as via your Corona Check app. Please check with your airline company if there are still any covid regulations in place to be accepted onboard. 

Entry requirements and corona travel regulations

Visa - Just like traveling to any other country, you will need a visa before you enter Uganda.This can no longer be done on arrival. You need to apply for your visa online, here.

PCR test - You don't need to show a PCR test to enter or exit Uganda when you're vaccinated. Travellers who are not vaccinated, need to show a medical certificate in English with a negative COVID PCR test result, not older than 72 hours (4 days).

Where can I get a PCR test done in Uganda?

In case you do need to get a PCR test done in Uganda, good to know this is super easy. There are reputable laboratories who offer walk in, drive through or even at home/ at your hotel  testing service. We recommend TestXpress and Test and Fly.  Labs are open 24/7, appointments can easily be made online, and same day results are possible. 

Roadtrip Africa flexible booking and no risk payment terms

We accept online payments by Credit Card, Bank transfer, or Ideal (Dutch customer only).

Payments are due latest two weeks before the start of your car rental trip. There are no refunds in case of a last minute cancelation or rescheduling, which is 14 days before your departure date or less.

Let's hope that COVID is something of the past. But in case it does become a pandemic again with severe travel restrictions and you have to cancel your booking, not to worry, we refund 100% of the payment. Valid COVID cancelation reasons are you tested positive with a PCR test ( only valid in case a PCR test is reintroduced to be able to enter the country), flights to/ from Uganda are banned, or when your home country all of a sudden imposes quarantine to visitors coming from Uganda.
