A citizen of Uganda intending to travel back to Uganda under the arrangement of returning stranded nationals, must register with the nearest Embassy of Uganda.
The returnee must undergo a PCR test for COVID-19 done at his/her current area of residence and again on arrival in Uganda. The PCR test for COVID-19 must have been done by a health facility that is accredited by the host Government.
Those who opt to be quarantined in a private hotel will meet their costs and will also be responsible for making their own reservations with the airlines. The Embassy may only assist with overall coordination of the exercise among others.
“They must provide the following information; a.)Ugandan Passport number, National ID or Residence/Work permit; b.)Circumstances under which they got stranded abroad; c.) Contact information of the next of kin in Uganda i.e. Telephone Number & LC 1 location; d.) Evidence of hospitalization for those who are returning from medical treatment abroad,” the guidelines read in part.
