PUBLIC NOTICE
The Uganda Civil Aviation Authority (UCAA) informs the general public that following an increasing number of people accessing Entebbe International Airport, and in light of the prevailing covid-19 situation, the following Standard Operating Procedures should be adhered to;
With effect from Saturday, December 19, 2020, departing and arriving passengers will only be dropped or picked from the airport by at most two people, including the driver of the car in order to avoid unnecessary crowding at the airport. Please note that vehicles with more than the authorized number of people will not be allowed to access the airport.
Departing passengers are also reminded to have an authentic and valid negative COVID-19 Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test certificate issued within 120 hours from the time of sample collection to the time of boarding the aircraft even if the country the passenger is going to does not require it. In case the destination country requires a COVID 19 PCR test certificate issued within less than 120 hours, the number of hours indicated by the destination country take priority. The PCR test certificate should be accompanied with a receipt from the test center/ laboratory.

Arriving passengers should also have an authentic and valid negative COVID-19 PCR test certificate from an accredited laboratory in the country of origin issued within 120 hours from the time of sample collection to time of boarding aircraft leaving country of origin.
