COVID-19 certificates nolonger reqiured from returnees

Ugandans returning from abroad will no longer have to obtain a negative COVID-19 certificate before entering the country. 


This new development comes after many of the returning Ugandans reported that they were unable to procure the tests. In some countries like United States, United Kingdom and South Africa, the price of testing for COVID-19 costs as much as $ 200.

Richard Mugahi, the head of COVID-19 quarantine centres and also the assistant commissioner of health services at the ministry of health says that they decided to stop asking the returnees for the certificates after several Ugandans said they could not access them.

According to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, 2,400 Ugandans have registered to return home. So far over 170 stranded Ugandans have returned from Turkey, Netherlands, Belgium, Sudan, Afghanistan and South Africa.
